Teaching English Language and Literacies in the Early Primary School Years - EDST310

This unit engages students in a study of English language and literacy pedagogy in the early primary school years, with a focus on “learning to read” and “learning to write”. This unit covers evidence-based teaching instruction for promoting language and literacy skills across the transition to school and early primary school years. It emphasises the need for a continuous cycle of explicit, systematic, and evidence-based instruction for all students. It also introduces strategies for supporting children in learning to read and write through a range of quality everyday and literary texts, and in ways that consider children’s oral language development and diverse linguistic and cultural experiences.
