About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. In this unit students investigate processes of speaking, listening, reading, writing, viewing and representing and creative and critical thinking across the prior to school and primary school years. The unit includes a focus on strategies for supporting emergent literacy and for teaching beginning readers, including strategies for working with children who are learning Standard Australian English as an additional language or dialect. There is a strong focus on the role of the educator in assessing children’s language and literacy learning and planning experiences and lessons that extend learning.
