Teaching Tools

Over the years we’ve built up a toolbox of tips and tricks that help us get the most out of our pupils. As we often say, our clinic runs on a strict bribery and corruption policy. Reward systems and energizers are all part and parcel of the Lifelong Literacy inventory.

We also offer presentations and talks on the various components of literacy as well as insights into very early learning and Socratic questioning.

The presentations below last for 90 minutes each.

Do contact us if you would like to book one or more of these presentations for your school’s curriculum day. We offer half and full-day sessions. Costs vary depending on travel distance.
