Tonight, in Auckland, I shared a dinner with Hilary Janks, of Wits University in South Africa. Hilary was enthusing over her 'Second Chance at Literacy' project in South Africa, in which she's trying to raise the reading and writing performance of kids who have been stigmatised as 'literacy strugglers' (largely because they're Africans writing in English, their second language). Hilary is going to use handheld mobile devices to get kids writing, blogging and collaborating. And more power to her elbow.

Professor Hilary Janks, from Wits University's School of Education, said this integrated approach had been adopted by the Independent Examinations Board for several years and had worked well.
She quoted a sentence in the document: "By observing how grammar has a real part to play in making meaning, in revealing truth and promoting a clearer understanding of how it works, learners are more likely to see the point of grammar."
Janks said the fear was that pupils could fail their exams because the failure to award marks separately for language structure would mean teachers would fail to give language any attention in class.
