How do I map the literacy and numeracy demands of my training or education programme? Part 1


The shortened version of the answer is here:

After watching that you’re going to need some ways of recording your mapping. The easiest way is to have some blank progressions templates, do the mapping visually (e.g. shade in the relevant steps in the grid), then write up your analysis.

Here’s what our template for this looks like below. Feel free to adapt it for your own purposes or email me for a copy.

Mapping your training: Literacy demands – In general

Map your whole course in terms of the general literacy requirements. Think of the big picture here.

  4. This has made me think about…

Mapping your training: Numeracy demands – In general

Map your whole course in terms of the numeracy requirements. Think of the big picture here. Remember: The three knowledge progressions on the right of the Number strand (shaded) are always one step below the highest step from the strategies progressions on the left.
