Literacy at Casebrook is focused around providing opportunities for Year 7 and 8 students to understand and experiment with oral, written and visual texts.
We engage our learners in Writing and Reading through integration and authenticity to ensure learning experiences have a context and upon which previous knowledge and confidence can be further developed.
These are the interconnected strands in the NZ Curriculum Document.
We use Write That Essay as programme to engage Intermediate aged students in their writing, especially boys. Students and teachers benefit from the structured progression through writing skills and contexts.
