Objective: Education Enrichment

Literacy Resources

Objective:
To develop a range of resources to help volunteers plan and teach quality literacy lessons.

Summary:
The resources are categorised into activities that support students' understanding of; Vocabulary,
Grammar, Spelling, Comprehension, Composition and Punctuation. As the majority of GVI's
education volunteers are not trained teachers, the resources are beneficial when they first begin to
plan and deliver literacy lessons.

Report:
Over the past few months GVI Dawsamu's
Education Project Leader has been developing
a range of resources to help volunteers plan
and teach quality literacy lessons. The
resources are categorised into activities that
support students' understanding of;
Vocabulary, Grammar, Spelling,
Comprehension, Composition and
Punctuation. As the majority of GVI's
education volunteers are not trained teachers, the resources are beneficial when they first begin to
plan and deliver literacy lessons.

Since the start of term three the resources have been in place in the Learning Centre at Navunisea
District School, with Dawasamu District School volunteers coming over to lesson plan once a week.
They have been well-used already, with volunteers adapting each resource so they can be used with
a wide range of age groups and abilities. Inspired by the success of the first activities, volunteers
have even started contributing by making their own resources which supply activities not yet
created.

Another aspect of the new bank of literacy resources is resource packs for particular story books in
the GVI library at NDS. These packs offer a range of activities and games, which are all based around
the content of a book. The aim is that volunteers will be encouraged to focus their literacy lessons
on a particular book for a longer period of time; increasing the children's comprehension and level of
understanding of central concepts to the story.

We will be continuing to add to our resources for the rest of the academic year, and onwards to
2018!
