GOOD PRACTICE Development of Literacy and Language Learning for Disadvantaged Young Learners

The Report of the Activities of Good Practice is the first intellectual result of the Erasmus + K2 project called Development of Literacy and Language Learning for Disadvantaged Young Learners, conducted from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2020. All project partners participated in creating the Report: the Faculty of Teacher Education, University of Zagreb, University of Maribor, Slovenia, University of St. Cyril and Methodius, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, and the Ivan Gundulić Primary School from Zagreb. The Report was published in Croatian, Macedonian, Slovene, and English. The goal of this Report was to show that in partner countries there already exists a good practice of helping disadvantaged children acquire literacy and language learning skills. Examining these best practice examples also showed certain mutual challenges and issues which are becoming starting points for coming up with other materials which shall be presented as the intellectual results of this project. Creating this Report was done in several phases: 1. defining the criteria of selecting best practices 2. examining available data on disadvantaged children’s acquisition of the language of their education 3. collecting data through interviews and practice examinations 4. selecting and describing best practice examples. Selecting best practices The criteria for selecting best practices were innovation, inclusion, interculturality, and the possibility of transfer (to other participants, into other contexts). Furthermore, one of the criteria for selecting examples was the representation of best practices through formal, non-formal, and informal learning, and we have also respected the criterion of displaying best practices regarding different children’s ages. Therefore, we have shown examples from working with children from preschool to secondary school age.
