How to create a language rich culture

7 July | 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

“If we are serious about ‘increasing standards’ we cannot continue to leave vocabulary development to parents, chance and highly motivated reading.’ (Biemiller) What can teachers and leaders do to create a whole-school culture where language and literacy growth is prioritised and celebrated? From disciplinary literacy curriculum design, to how to use assemblies for Tier 2 vocabulary growth, we explore case studies from across the country and offer practical strategies, for the classroom and whole school environment, that schools can use to transform their context into a language rich culture.
