Training the Teachers of the Future: Language Policy and Literacy at CPUT

This project involves two components:

The first one is to develop and implement *an adapted, integral and*
Language Policy for the CPUT Faculty of Education*, by using a specific
methodology, namely teaching in a language-developing way. This policy
focuses on language skills in the broadest sense of the word, it is
integrated in the curriculum of study programmes and is therefore both
durable and inclusive. The project will also develop lecturer competence in
integrating discipline-specific language skills into content and using
technology in their teaching. The final purpose is to prepare teacher
training students to use these insights in their own professional future as
they are the teachers to be.

The second one will focus on *reading skills of teacher training students*
(and hence indirectly on those of their future pupils or students), as a
lack of (English) reading proficiency is one of the major problems
encountered by CPUT students. A thorough needs analysis followed by action
research involving the setting up and implementation of a reading programme
will enhance teacher training reading skills and enable them to set up
integrated reading activities in their future classrooms.
