Delivering topic content using a different strategy
Developing literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing sit at the core of all curricula around the globe and thus, developing literacy skills is a key focus in every classroom. This resource provides you with another approach to a routine task and focuses on an approach called: ‘Reading to Write’ which was developed in Australia. Using this strategy, the content of a topic is taught through the reading and writing rather than using the reading and writing after the teaching.
