The role of the teaching assistant is crucial in the support of literacy skills. What to support and how to provide support is a familiar dilemma, but knowing where to start helps! This course will help teaching assistants to have a clearer understanding of what exactly ‘literacy’ is; learn how to support effectively; and discover how to encourage children to become independent learners.

  • Looking at writing skills and how to support and develop them
  • Understanding how formative assessment works in the classroom
  • How children read: reading strategies
  • Encouraging handwriting style and presentation
  • Spelling problems
