DIRT posters (SPaG)

DIRT posters (SPaG)

I have created 7 posters to aid with the use of DIRT time in the classroom. Pupils visit the poster that matches with the feedback given in their books. They then take a photograph of this on their tablet or phone and return to their desks to read through the information and complete the activities.

Literacy posters (DIRT)

Literacy posters (DIRT)

These posters are designed to help make DIRT time more easy and effective to carry out in a reflective lesson. The idea behind them is that students can take a photograph of these on their phone or tablet, they then return to their seats and read the information about the area of literacy that they need to improve on and then complete the activity to practice this skill. These can also just be used as posters to have in a classroom or as worksheets to hand out in lessons.

The PLT document refers to a 'Personalised Literacy Tracker' which can be used with all students across the school. This can be glued into planners and referenced across ALL subjects. There is a step-by-step guide attached which tells you exactly how you could use this document in your school and also provides you with the resources needed to teach the explicit literacy foci across your subject areas.
