Early Literacy Support Programme: Materials for Teachers Working in Partnership with Teaching Assistants. Early Literacy Support Programme. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
This book contains materials to support the introduction of Early Literacy Support (ELS) in Year 1 schools in England. The 60 sessions outlined in the book are designed to revisit key objectives from the National Literacy Strategy Framework. The ELS program involves comprehension training for Year 1 teachers and teaching assistants. The training is designed to ensure that children receive quality first teaching in the first term, that careful screening and selection processes are employed to identify the children most at risk, and that the selected group of up to six children then receives an effective intervention (including 60 additional literacy lessons in the second term). The appendix contains a pack of materials to support the screening process and some advice on the selection of the intervention group. Contains a 19-item glossary. (RS)
