Developing statistical report writing for ESOL and low literacy level students – Malia Puloka

Malia Puloka (University of Auckland) knows that for students with very low literacy levels, writing NCEA statistical reports is a nightmare. Teaching such students to write statistical reports even at a basic level can be quite frustrating for teachers. The workshop shared ideas Malia used in the classroom which resulted in students writing better reports, increasing the pass rate and the number of Merit/Excellence grades. Malia focussed on analysing and writing discussions for statistical graphs. This strategy would suit a classroom that is predominantly ESOL students.
