This subject will examine changing definitions and conceptualisations of literacy, and map the development of literacy from the early years through to post-compulsory years of schooling. Topics will include areas such as: relationships between language and literacy; social practices of literacy; language and cognitive development; oral and written languages; comprehension; literacy across the curriculum; and in-school and out-of-school literacy practices.
This subject will highlight the importance of planning effective evidenced-based literacy approaches and strategies to meet the needs of diverse learners on a developmental curriculum. It will illustrate how teachers, planners and policymakers can cater for diversity in policy and practice, such as: 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, multilingual and multidialectal understandings of literacy, and of the context that shapes literacy practice.

2,500 word paper on literacy theory, due mid-semester 50%
