Secondary Literacy  

 This area aims to help secondary teachers gain an understanding of the literacy demands within subject areas and required by the curriculum.

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.

For each area, students need specific help from subject area teachers as they learn:

  • the specialist vocabulary associated with that area
  • how to read and understand its texts
  • how to communicate knowledge and ideas in appropriate ways
  • how to listen and read critically, assessing the value of what they hear and read.

For further reading relating to the Technology learning area go to Literacy in Technology.
