Knowledge building relies to the largest extent on language as the prime meaning-making tool. It is important that teachers have the knowledge and skills to be pedagogically effective so learners’ capability is potentiated particularly due to intentionality about language learning.
Pedagogy that focuses on language in abundance pays attention to explicitly involving learners in texts, spoken and written. It surfs learners into language complexity, wave by wave. By so doing, learners cognitive capabilities are expanded, their knowledge reservoirs are filled more deeply and fully, and their vocabulary and language comprehension and expression shift upwards and out as a result.
Teachers and school leaders are given the knowledge and pedagogical support to implement teaching and learning that take learners to higher levels of capabilities. In the short and long term, learners are enabled when language in abundance is provided optimally.
