Primary Literacy and Art

Description

In this programme a panel discuss the issues raised in Literacy Through Art, a video made by Chris Mooney, a teacher at Ellenbrook Primary School, Manchester.

Chris' video, part of unique showcase of videos made by teachers about their work in schools, looks at a Creative Partnerships project to stimulate writing through art, with visual artist Johnny Woodhams.

Focusing on the topic of Ghana, the video shows Chris's Year 4 class engaged in creative activities stimulated by a visit from two Ghanaian women, and concluding with a pupil presentation at the Lowry Centre.

Presenter Xanthe Steen is joined in the studio by Chris, education consultant Adrienne Jones and fellow teachers Tim Taylor and Emma Hamilton-Smith, to discuss the video. They also reflect on how teacher videos could be used for assessment and CPD.

Action! Teacher Video provides teachers with the forum to make their own videos and have them broadcast on SchoolsWorld, to be discussed by a panel of experts.
