Welcome to Secondary Literacy. These pages will help secondary teachers gain an understanding of the literacy demands within subject areas and required by the curriculum; they will also support teachers to develop teaching and learning programmes based on the literacy needs of their learners.
“Each learning area has its own language or languages. As students discover how to use them, they find they are able to think in different ways, access new areas of knowledge, and see their world from new perspectives". (Ministry of Education, 2007, p. 18).
