Creating a need to read
Literacy levels of the community are fairly unknown but it is assumed that they are low. In this community there are no street signs, no books in homes and not a huge need to read. At the school we have strategies in place to increase written text and the need to read in the community. One of these strategies is a school newsletter that goes out a few times a term to keep community informed about what goes on in school.
For my class’s report I thought I’d share the pictures that my students had drawn of the good and bad things in the break the cycle song we have been learning about (which are similar to the reality of this community) in the hope that it would spark thoughts or conversations on what this is about.
Here it is :)
