Michael Rosen’s posts are a constant source of inspiration and passionate entreaty. This one struck a particular chord: who indeed owns literacy? How is it being culturally mediated? If we can agree that literacy is a competence that enables those who have it to constructively participate in society (isn’t that the aim of most educational endeavour?), we should come up with more child-centred ways of giving them access to it. They can experience what it feels like to be in control of a Wow Word Wall or a pupil-owned and edited collaborative blog. Teachers as skilled facilitators rather than deliverers of literacy, that’s what I’d like to see more of. See the full post here.
