Literacy Today


Reading: We have provided you with an up-to-date reading about literacy in your folder: p. 48-53 in the Red Section (Days 1 & 2) - we have delayed this reading to give you more time to process new learning about curriculum, assessment and effective teaching.

Viewing: There is a fantastic video of Professor Alan Luke explaining the way we need to think about literacy today.
You can access the video link here (it will take awhile to download):

Or, if you still cannot get the video link to work there is an audio option which you can access here:
