I am in my second year of teaching and I feel like I still don't know how to plan effectively for literacy. I find the framework very difficult to use, teaching everything through a specific genre. I feel like last year's class didn't make as must progress as they could of because I just wasn't teaching them anything useful. How do you build in all the puctuation / grammar they need to learn? How do you build up to writing a story? How do you teach the genre stuff? I find it all so difficult, I don't find the scholastic lesson plans or the hamilton trust very useful. There seems to be alot of the genre focus stuff but all the skills are missing. There is alot of speaking and listening and my school has inisted that the children should have a piece of written work at the end of every lesson.
