Literacy

Understood as the ability to read, write, and use arithmetic , traditionally, LITERACY in more modern expansions of language, ... its meaning includes the ability to use language, numbers, images, computers, and other basic means to understand, communicate, gain useful knowledge and use dominant symbol systems of a particular culture.  

 

Research has found that in teaching LITERACY, there is an empirical link between school leadership and student achievement.

  • Provide contextual analysis
  • Design activities with a purpose
  • Use task-based orientated activities
  • Encourage collaboration

  • Adjust feedback/error correction in all academia
  • Include awareness of cultural aspects and historical context in classroom facilitation

 

We Challenge Teachers' Practices

We aid educators with bringing unfamiliar strategies and paradigms out of the theoretical stages into disciplined habitual practices.

We transform conceptual thought quality of the lifelong learner.
