Literacy, Self-Belief and the Implications for Examination Success

There is a strong link between reading ability and general academic performance, especially in STEM subjects where specific vocabulary is required, and where the focus in the higher levels moves from simple calculations to complex problem solving.

What is less understood is the link between a student’s reading ability and their general motivation and self-belief.

In this webinar we compare one school’s findings to global trends and discuss how they measured the impact of their literacy programme and the literacy and wellbeing changes achieved.

This session was delivered by Bernadetta Brzyska, Head of Research at GL Education, and Amel Dali-bey, Head of Primary English at Nord Anglia International School, Dubai.
