Responsibility of all Literacy Numeracy Health and Wellbeing
Why the responsibility of all? Literacy and numeracy skills are essential to access the wider curriculum. Literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing enhance opportunities in life, learning and work. Low literacy, numeracy skills are linked with social and economic disadvantage which in turn impacts negatively on health and well- being
What is numeracy? Being numerate involves developing a confidence and competence in using number that allows individuals to solve problems, interpret and analyse information, make informed decisions, function responsibly in everyday life and contribute effectively to society.
To what extent do you already provide numeracy experiences to learners? Where does numeracy play a part in your normal learning and teaching? Does your teaching programme involve estimating, measuring, using and managing money, reading information from charts and tables? Numeracy across learning
Literacy is the set of skills which allows an individual to engage fully in society and in learning, through the different forms of language which society values and finds useful. What is literacy?
Literacy across learning …the greatest impact for learners will come from all practitioners, in all learning environments, including rich literacy experiences as part of their day-to-day learning and teaching programmes. ( principles and practice )
To what extent do you provide opportunities for learners to: learn collaboratively and explain their thinking to others? consider the purpose and main concerns in texts, think about reliability of information and acknowledge sources? find, select, sort, summarise and link information from a variety of sources? use language effectively to create texts which allow learners to persuade/argue/explore ideas? Literacy across learning
What is health? Health is holistic and includes different dimensions - individual, societal, environmental and global. A holistic approach to health means taking account of separate influences and the interaction of different dimensions Naidoo & Wills 2009
