Lighting the Literacy Fire

The guidelines set out by Jill in Lighting the Literacy Fire raise the literacy bar for both teachers and learners. These guidelines focus on what is crucial to ensure learners reach desired national outcomes and standards.

Jill recognises that todays readers and writers have a greater need to be engaged in both regular and sustainable practice in oral language as well as comprehension skills. Lighting the Literacy Fire emphasises the teaching of these skills within the context of the complete literacy programme. This is literacy teaching explained plainly, at its most explicit, for teachers to transfer directly into their classroom programmes.

How will Lighting the Literacy Fire assist your literacy programme?


It provides the fuel that will ensure your learners are captured by the spark, to become successful, life-long readers and writers.
