"Burfo's bumper bargain bonanza..."

Average Rating4.14
(based on 15 reviews)

As a" jobbing" teacher of English I KNOW what my students need to improve their literacy skills, comprehend what is required of them as regards reading criteria and what will inspire them to write to describe, argue or to help forge a narrative...and this knowledge is distilled into my resources! The photo-slides, model paragraphs, sentence stems, along with planning ideas, all compliment each other and as a jobbing teacher of English I can return to the resources time and time again...

The real-life literacy mistakes can easily be made into displays and whole school competitions. Of course you can use these resources time and time again. (Why not employ one of the resources for that special observed lesson?) All of the images are the author's own.

author avatar You’re buying this resource from burfo (1) 10 photographs of real life literacy mistakes that I have taken myself - with answers. Some real howlers here for the students to spot ! The students love catching adults out - as we did! Why not make that observed lesson stand out for the right reasons? Literacy co-ordinators...you could print them off and produce a classroom or corridor display! Why not upload a slide and put it on all the screen savers around school? * For homework you could ask the students to take photographs on their phones of any literacy howlers that they spot! Of course you can use the presentations again and again to reinforce the point; you could also expand on the starters and produce an activity. Why not have a whole school literacy focus and use one of the slides - positioned all round school - to reinforce the foci? By encouraging students to spot adult's literacy mistakes they might start noticing their own! Copyright: all images are the author's own.
