This subject builds participants’ capacity to develop pedagogical knowledge and skills in order to improve language, literacy and numeracy (L,L&N) outcomes for all students. Evidence is presented to demonstrate the importance of L,L&N skills for success at school, future learning and for full participation in the community and the workplace.
This subject explores the current definitions and the place of L,L&N in the curriculum; examines Australian students’ performance in national and international assessment programs.
