LITERACY SUPPORT PROGRAMME

The SL Literacy Support System provides schools with regular assistance to help busy heads and teachers in specific LITERACY-RELATED difficulties emerging from your school reality. SL helps you find the resources to boost students’ motivation, and develop ENGAGING PROJECTS to spice up your Literature-based syllabus. We can also contribute in the selection of READING MATERIALS and enhancement of CURRICULUM DESIGN. Educational Consultant María Teresa Manteo visits schools and keeps online contact with schools who wish to hire this service.

 

WORKSHOPS

Flow, Literature and the Arts

In this workshop we explore the notion of FLOW, as defined by the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and its relationship with Literature linked to the Arts, in its various forms -visual, musical and kinesthetic. We also jointly build a place where learners can experience a sense of competence in their expressive possibilities, where energy can flow in virtuous circles of learning, so that optimal states for artistic expression can bereached.

 

Through our educational programmes
we seek to:

CONTRIBUTE to teachers’ professional development

PROMOTE the integration of the arts into the curriculum

ADVOCATE for the importance of positive messages in education

OFFER strategies to spark interest in reading and writing

REACH individuals essentially as “learning beings”

STRENGTHEN literacy home-school connections

ENCOURAGE collaborative work with other professionals

CONNECT to teachers’ capacity to become facilitators of change and growth!

 

Words that Heal: the Affective Domain in Language Learning

A sense of security, confidence, belonging, purpose and competence in language learning… How to nurture them? How to build them through caring teaching strategies? In this workshop we explore how we can use words to frame questions and routines in an atmosphere where affect and positive energy flow. Talk, active listening and non-competitive games will also be presented as part of the core of resources that recognize self-esteem and feelings of self-worth as the cornerstone of any human endeavour. A session that addresses language learning needs far and beyond.
Based on The Seeds of Confidence by Verónica de Andrés and Jane Arnold-Hebling Publishing.

 

THE READING & WRITING FACILITATOR PROGRAMME

A course in four modules that stresses teachers’ role as mediators of reading and writing processes, where the learner develops his own sense of voice and competence in his literacy skills.

1. The Reading and Language Arts Workshop

A dynamic framework to promote independent reading and celebrate shared reading in safe and relaxed environments around literacy. Through the Language Arts we also explore creative activities to help lay the foundations of literacy skills.

2. Weaving Literacy through the Arts

In this workshop we turn to the Arts to help children revisit text and build meaning from a constructivist perspective, as well as strengthen exploratory skills to make connections, synthesize, determine importance and question their reading

3. Values, Literature and NLP

The purpose of this workshop is to explore communication strategies and some material from literary sources to genuinely work on values from an “inward - outward approach”, a way to align conscience, actions and desired outcomes. NLP, Literature and Values are part of a cauldron where empathetic communication and the inspirational spark of Literature join to generate an important flow of energy- feelings, thoughts and actions- to improve our working environments and help us make a difference in education.

4. The Reading and Writing Connection

In this session we address the need to read and write as part of the same process. We discuss strategies to support struggling readers and writers as well right-brain activities to unleash creativity. We also go into social constructivism to structure literary discussions and facilitate the Writing Process.
