Built - Building Understandings in Literacy and Teaching

Synopsis
Originally devised by the Language and Literacy team at The University of Melbourne for use with their primary and secondary teacher trainees (of all subjects), it contains a wealth of video footage which is organised into four units. These introduce fundamental concepts about language and literacy in education from a systemic functional grammar perspective. Each unit focuses on: a)different types of language, use of text in context;
b) teaching strategies for scaffolding learning.

Uses: Initial Teacher Education (with PGCE and BEd students of English and other subjects) to develop knowledge about language and essential literacy teaching skills;
AS/A2 level language teaching; iNSET with both primary and secondary teachers to support a rich interpretation of the Key Stage 3 and National Literacy Strategies.
