The Literacy for learning (Australian edition) course supports teachers in all subject areas to address the fundamental relationship between literacy and successful learning. The course links explicitly to the Australian Curriculum and:
- develops teachers’ understandings of literacy as a capacity for making meaning in schooling contexts
- develops teachers’ understandings of the need for explicit teaching practices that will build up students’ repertoires of language and visual resources so that they can be successful learners across all learning areas
- provides a positive context for teachers to reflect critically and openly on their teaching
- develops shared understandings about literacy in order to improve the effectiveness of whole-school collaboration in ensuring the literacy development of all students.
