Reading 4 Meaning: The Building Blocks. (VWSA Conference 2017)
Since the launch of the Legacy Literacy Initiative in 2015, the VW Community Trust and its partners have developed and implemented a comprehensive literacy programme with a strategic goal of ensuring that children in Uitenhage are functionally literate by age 10 or grade 3.
The theme in 2017 was “Reading 4 Meaning, the building blocks”. At the conference, the results of the latest survey conducted by Rhodes University onreading ability amongst Grade 3 learners in Uitenhage was shared, examining what has been achieved and assessing what still needs to be done.
