General Information


Knowing and understanding literacy and numeracy teaching strategies and their application to teaching areas in secondary schools is the focus of this unit. In this unit you will learn how to identify literacy and numeracy needs of secondary school students so you are able to implement learning activities to address appropriate learning requirements for individuals and groups. You will explore contemporary strategies and approaches to teaching literacy and numeracy to enable you to plan, assess and report on individual student literacy and numeracy capabilities. You will investigate the techniques that will enable you to identify the specific literacy and numeracy deficiencies that students may have, so you are able to provide appropriate learning support. Pedagogical strategies to address the needs of learners in literacy and numeracy are developed, to enable the appropriate design, implementation and evaluation of teaching, learning and assessment strategies, that facilitate and enhance student learning. This unit also requires the development and maintenance of your personal literacy and numeracy skills together with critically reflective practices to enhance your professional learning.
