Relating to others

Relating to others is about interacting effectively with a diverse range of people in a variety of contexts. This competency includes the ability to listen actively, recognise different points of view, negotiate, and share ideas.

Students who relate well to others are open to new learning and able to take different roles in different situations. They are aware of how their words and actions affect others. They know when it is appropriate to compete and when it is appropriate to co-operate. By working effectively together, they can come up with new approaches, ideas, and ways of thinking.

We are running an integrated literacy program where writing and reading are combined in the same session, 4 times a week. Other curriculum areas will also tie into these sessions to create rich learning experiences.

We will focus on one text a week. The LA will read to the children and model decoding and comprehension strategies. We will move on to shared reading, where the text is big enough for the children to read along with the teacher. Finally, students will end the week with independent reading, where they apply the strategies they have learned over the week.
