Opening a Literacy Surgery allows just that . . .
Learners – equipped with their surgical gloves, mask and utensils – can put the grammar, spelling and language skills that they’ve learned into an active context.
Perhaps you want them to form contractions, make common words or even create sentences. A Literacy Surgery is a great technique that can be used to provide learners with the experience of developing these skills. The photo slideshow highlights some possible ideas; however, click the Pinterest image below to explore the concept further.
