Teaching Inquiry: Planning to meet student needs

How can literacy learning needs be addressed in the teaching and learning programme?

The Guidelines for Effective Adolescent Literacy Instruction provide teachers with a framework for literacy inquiry and outlines the principles of effective literacy instruction.

Units/lesson sequences based on The Arts (and other) curriculum objectives, designed or re-designed for English language learners.

How does research inform my inquiry?

Literacy Instruction in the Content Areas : An overview of the importance of literacy embedded in the context of secondary school learning areas. Alliance for Excellence in Education (2007)

Teaching Disciplinary Literacy to Adolescents: Rethinking Content Area Literacy : This study examines which comprehension strategies might best fit particular disciplinary reading tasks, and also suggests how students may be best prepared for the reading, writing, and thinking required by advanced disciplinary coursework.

How will progress be monitored?

Your inquiry will determine the ways in which progress should be monitored. For example, you may decide to monitor progress through student writing, oral responses, research skills and/or presentations.
