Curriculum Based Information Carrying Word Pack is a rich resource of beautiful pictures and interesting activities which incorporates the ICW principle with the Key Stage 1 History, Geography and Science Units of the National Curriculum for England and Wales. it also has value for schools in other countries in the UK as similar themes are part of the curricula.

The TALC is based on the Language of Learning Model proposed by Blank, Rose and Berlin (1978). The Language of Learning Model is popular in Australia where it is referred to as 'Blanks' or 'The Blank Language Scheme.' This scheme is very popular with early years and education staff as it helps them to differentiate class based activities for all children. This assessment will enable children to be appropriately assessed and supported at the right level for them. Anyone familiar with the principles of assessing children can conduct the TALC.
More information about 'Blank' is written in the resource and in all Elklan Language Builders books (excepting Communication Support for Children with Severe and Complex Needs).
