We are excited to be announcing our partnership with the EAL Academy, school improvement specialists and leaders in the fields of academic literacy, ethnic minority achievement and EAL.
What is 3L?
3L addresses central issues in the current Ofsted framework (in a UK context). The development of cultural capital is closely associated with the ability to read, write and speak formal English that is subject appropriate. It also requires the ability to express ideas with both clarity and nuance. Studying the full curriculum, be it the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum or Ebacc requires a growing grasp of how academic language works. At A-level the importance of subject specific academic literacy is intensified. The Education Endowment Foundation has also identified disciplinary literacy as an approach to improving literacy across the curriculum.
