A Whole School Approach to Developing Narrative Skills

Year Level: Early Years, Foundation, Year 1 & 2, Years 3 to 6

An information sheet outlining a step by step, whole school approach to developing narrative skills using PLD’s programs.

Research focused on narrative ability has repeatedly reported a correlation between literacy and academic achievement. Narrative training programs have also been shown to produce positive growth in reading comprehension and written expression ability.
As increasing numbers of children are entering the education system with immature language skills, this progressive program aims to maximise children’s language profile and thereby their overall academic
achievement.
