Literacies and Numeracies in Context

About this subject

  • Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:

    1. explore and consider the application of home and community literacy practices, including those of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and others from diverse backgrounds, and consider them in relation to the development of teaching, learning and assessment strategies at school (GTSD 1.3.1, 1.4.1, 2.4.1, 7.4.1);
    2. develop knowledge and understanding of strategies and research into engagement of students across the full range of abilities in relevant, critically challenging, curriculum-based activities to build literacy and numeracy skills (GTSD 1.2.1, 1.5.1, 2.5.1);
    3. build a repertoire of explicit and effective literacy and numeracy teaching strategies appropriate to relevant syllabus documents including the application of ICT and the New Literacies to engage students in their learning, evaluate teaching programs, and improve learning (GTSD 2.5.1, 2.6.1, 3.3.1, 3.4.1, 3.6.1);
    4. analyse student work samples to identify areas of literacy/numeracy need, provide accurate and appropriate oral and written feedback, modify teaching practice, and develop strategies for student support, including the support of students with additional learning needs (GTSD 1.5.1, 4.1.1, 5.1.1, 5.2.1, 5.4.1); and
    5. interpret and demonstrate knowledge of NSW or other syllabus documents that address literacy and numeracy demands, to program and plan units of work and demonstrate an understanding of the importance of a continuing focus on literacy and numeracy across all areas of the curriculum (GTSD 2.1.1, 2.2.1, 2.3.1, 2.5.1, 3.2.1).
