Bedrock Learning invites you to their event

Improving disciplinary literacy and mapping subject-specific vocabulary

About this event

The Education Endowment Foundation (2019) recommended secondary schools to “prioritise disciplinary literacy” to drive literacy improvement across the whole-school curriculum.

But, what’s the point of subject-specific vocabulary?

Joining Bedrock Learning’s Senior English Specialist Ellie Ashton, our panel of inspirational educators will explore how to improve disciplinary literacy and map subject-specific vocabulary through the following questions:

  1. What is disciplinary literacy?
  2. How are you currently improving literacy at your school?
  3. So what practical steps can you take to make impactful progress on your literacy journey?

This research-driven, evidence-based webinar is bound to be a lively discussion and suitable for you no matter what your subject specialism is or where you’re at in your literacy journey. 

Stay tuned for updates on our panellists!
