KS3 Literacy SOW/ Plan/ Rationale
A KS3 plan of how to teach, plan and track literacy across the key stage.
Each plan tracks the language and grammar skills that students will need for the new English Language and Literature specifications GCSE examinations from 2015.

Each document depicts a language, a punctuation and a sentence skill that students will focus on each half term.
It also has a clear rationale of how each skills links to the assessment objectives from the exam. It is intended to help staff to target specific skills each half term.

There is also a section that details suggested reading activities to be used with class novels. Each activity is linked to Bloom's taxonomy as well as the AO's and are different for each key stage.

The year 9 document also suggests how questions can be phrased to link to the new English Language (unseen literature) paper 1.

The scheme is intended to be used by a department to aid building literacy into existing schemes of work or to help structure stand alone library/literacy lessons.
