This book has three unusual dimensions which those working on school improvement often overlook; staff development; student involvement; and enlisting parents. It is worth reading for that alone... * Sir Tim Brighouse *
Being a literacy coordinator can feel like the loneliest job in the school, and making whole-school literacy have real classroom impact can be hugely frustrating. That's why this book is so welcome: it's positive, practical and hugely uplifting. * Geoff Barton, Headteacher, King Edward VI School and author of Don't Call it Literacy *
This toolkit is full of practical, feasible steps that help staff across the curriculum reflect on how literacy is their business. It will be invaluable for anyone attempting to achieve that tricky thing: an effective whole-school approach to raising standards of literacy. * Julia Strong, former Deputy Director of the National Literacy Trust *
Here, instead of presenting the notion as a troublesome necessity to be tackled bravely, the authors retain a sense of infectious enthusiasm throughout - yes, the idea is to enable students to express themselves effectively across the curriculum, but at the same time, there is a real sense of nurturing a love of language, too. This is as much an uplifting read as it is a useful manual and as such, a worthy addition to your reference shelves. -- Helen Mulley * Teach Secondary *
