Literacy Coordinators' Handbook.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
This handbook is designed to provide support for England's National Literacy Strategy's Literacy Coordinators leading and coordinating literacy across the school. The handbook is designed as a working document and will contain additional materials, LEA (local education authorities) guidance, and additional papers which Coordinators may choose to add. It can supplement existing materials, and materials from it can be incorporated into other school documentation. The structure, organization of information, and a number of key components of the handbook are common across literacy and mathematics. The handbook includes four elements: (1) a self-evaluation grid; (2) a coordinator planner; (3) training materials; and (4) supporting information. The self-evaluation grid and national training materials have been designed to support the coordinators' work in four key areas: establishing priorities, analyzing results, and reviewing priorities; continuing to improve the quality of teaching and learning; management and deployment of resources; and professional development into practice.
