Literacy Competence Formation of the Modern School
Tavdgiridze, Lela
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n26 p107-110 2016
In 2006 45 countries carried out the international literacy survey which revealed that the majority of 9-10 years children have not proper basic reading skills. Georgian children also took part in the survey. The fact that I work with future-teachers, who have to teach children to read and write, led me to become interested in this issue. Literacy is the basis in the formation of multi-educated personality. The national curriculum puts important tasks for school by foreseeing the aims of general education and public requirements, in order to develop students' literacy competence. Literacy includes different kind of skills such as reading, writing, processing the information, ideas and opinions, decision-making and problem-solving. Students' writing and reading skills development is becoming an important part of modern school education. Native language program is beyond the scope of these skills, therefore it joins to subject departments' responsibility. This includes enrichment of training programs with the new methods and a wide variety of reading materials. Any subject teacher should use the methods, strategies and activities that develop reading and writing skills and can provide with literacy-oriented environment.
