Literacy underpins all learning for children. As a future teacher, it is important that you have a depth of understanding about the wide variability of literacy achievement and the factors that affect literacy achievement in the classroom. In this subject you will examine assessment techniques for determining learning needs in literacy by studying theory and practical learning activities. Teaching and intervention activities that accelerate literacy learning will also be explored. You will be drawing on your knowledge of evidence-based literacy techniques to plan, implement and evaluate intervention strategies for literacy learning. This subject requires you to have contact with children so you can complete the assessment tasks. Requirements for student teachers who have contact with children are the completion of online anaphylaxis training, the completion of an online child protection module and a valid Working With Children Check (WWC).
