This year, two members of the Somerset College English Department, Mrs Sarah Hossy and Mr Chris Enwright, will be involved in a project which aims to further raise the literacy standards of Middle Years Programme (MYP) students.
In the first phase of the project, Mr Enwright and Mrs Hossy will be analysing ICAS and NAPLAN assessment data in order to identify areas where further skill development may be required. In the second phase of the project, they will be involved in educational research and professional development to determine current best practice in the teaching of reading comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, grammar and punctuation.
The primary objective of the project is to design a comprehensive Years 6 to 10 literacy framework that will enable students to become more confident and proficient communicators.
