Macmillan Education Caribbean say they have launched their Level up Literacy campaign, designed to refresh teachers as they return to schools and support them as they work with different literacy levels in their new classrooms.
This campaign, which is set to run from September 12-29, will offer teachers and educators the chance to boost their literacy knowledge and skills in a series of online webinars, Macmillan said in a news release.
A supporting social media campaign will provide further activities and learnings that can be applied in the classrooms, in addition to free Teacher’s Guides which come with enriched planning, support, and visual resources such as wall charts.
Based on the Macmillan Education popular literacy titles, Grammar Rules! and Spelling Rules!, the company said this social campaign is a chance for teachers to inject fun and established literacy pedagogy into teaching the most essential skills of communication and comprehension.
The series of webinars, hosted by Literacy expert, Charlotte Rance cover a range of topics – from making grammar education fun, to assessing and supporting students of a range of abilities in the classroom. Each webinar lasts one hour, and teachers will receive a certificate of participation on attending.
This campaign compounds Macmillan Education Caribbean’s promise of making education accessible, as all webinars will be available on demand – so that teachers who are busy with the demands of the new school year will be able to access the content whenever it suits them.
