Knowledge of secondary literacy

Literacy in secondary schools

For many students, literacy changes considerable at a Secondary school level. The "writing whare" is a visual support to start a conversation that builds deeper understanding. This helps learners to think about the questions that help create a meaningful text, while considering the text features that are common to their subject area and text type.

Guidelines for effective adolescent literacy instruction

The English Language Learning Progressions (ELLP) are key documents for the assessment, planning and teaching of English language learners. They help teachers to choose content, vocabulary, and tasks that are appropriate to each learner's age, stage, and language-learning needs. This may include learners for whom English is a first language but who would benefit from additional language support.

Leading literacy in your school

The Literacy Learning Progressions describes the specific literacy knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students draw on in order to meet the reading and writing demands of the curriculum. Teachers need to ensure that their students develop the literacy expertise that will enable them to engage with the curriculum at increasing levels of complexity and with increasing independence.
