Improving Boys' Literacy in Wales - Barry Comprehensive School

Description

Teachers demonstrate their successful strategies for improving literacy in teenage boys at Barry Comprehensive School in Wales.

The school has been recognised for its achievements in improving literacy, and teachers Jenny Conway and Sian Morgan show how the strategy works in the classroom.

They make sure they provide frequent opportunities for its students to read and write and take time to understand their learning styles. Appropriate forms of assessment are used and they encourage positive role models within the school.

There is also an insight into the role of libraries in the campaign to improve boys' literacy.
