Framework for Teaching English: Years 7, 8 and 9. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
This Framework for Teaching English is based closely on the Programmes of Study for English in the revised National Curriculum (England) of 2000. Its primary aim is to equip all students for the world in which they will live and work--a world which places a high premium on the written and spoken word, where reading and writing permeate every aspect of life. The Framework is the starting point for a fresh approach to teaching and learning which is key to the whole Key Stage 3 strategy. The purposes of the Framework are: to set out teaching objectives for students in Key Stage 3 to ensure that they will build on their achievements in elementary school; to provide a basis for target-setting; to ensure that students entering Key Stage 3 below Level 4 are supported to catch up; to provide guidance for teachers to use these objectives to plan appropriately challenging work for their students; to enable headteachers and curriculum managers to set high and consistent expectations for achievement; and to promote continuity and progression between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3. Following a Foreword, the Framework is divided into these sections: (1) Rationale (Introduction; Structure of the Framework; Covering the National Curriculum; Approaches to Teaching and Learning; Planning and Assessment); (2) Teaching Objectives: Years 7, 8, and 9; (3) Appendices (Planning exemplars; Name tags; Key Stage 3 spelling lists); and (4) Additional Guidance on Inclusion (Inclusion; Including Pupils with Special Educational Needs; Pupils Learning English as an Additional Language; Supporting and Challenging Gifted and Talented Pupils).
