Teaching Literacy Using Toolkits

    On top of creating checklists with pupils during a unit, I have used my own checklists for 'drop in' tasks during units to refresh pupils' memories on genre features.

    I think theres a danger with toolkits that pupils can bung in features for the sake of ticking them off a list, so it helps to discuss the effect and purpose of features and re-draft for cohesion.

    Thank you for that - it's true, whatever they use has to be for purpose and effect otherwise, as you say, it becomes a tick box exercise.
