Literacy CPD – 2014 . . .

It’s been a busy term in Literacy HQ. We’re currently developing ‘The Highland Literacy Progression’ which we aim to send out before Easter 2014. We’re also developing further PowerPoints to add to the Literacy Toolkit as well as, where appropriate, refreshing the HLP materials.


The Highland Literacy Group are co-ordinating three CPD events during inset on February 19th 2014. Two of these event will take place at Crown Primary School in Inverness, the third in Invergordon Academy.

6traitsThe first CPD event is a workshop which looks at ‘Creating Texts’ in the Primary School. The morning aims to question ‘What makes a good text?’, linking to the ’6 Traits + 1′ writing resource. Referred to in earlier posts, ’6 Traits + 1′ is a resource which can be used across the school to develop writing. This open to practitioners within the Primary sector.

The 2 hour CPD will allow practitioners to familiarise themselves with the Literacy Toolkit, providing  guidance as how to facilitate this within schools.
