This subject focuses on the importance of planning effective literacy approaches and strategies to meet the needs of diverse learners. It will highlight how teachers cater for diversity through 'crafting a mix' of pedagogic approaches in reading, writing. listening and speaking; through authentic and focused assessment practices, including profiling students and through the use of a wide range of texts and practices in the classroom. Informing this subject will be an examination of the interface between literacy and social context, taking into account considerations of gender, ESL, socio-economic status, indigenous status and the health and well being of students. Assessing the learning needs of individual students will be a major focus.The subject will build on the e5 framework.

Two assignments, one of 2000 words, or equivalent, due halfway through the subject (40%), the other of 3000 words, or equivalent, due approximately two weeks after the last class (60%).
