This subject focuses on meeting the literacy and language needs of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) students in the primary school classroom through the development of effective teaching and learning strategies. With specific reference to the elements of the NSW English K–10 Syllabus (Vol. 1) and relevant aspects of the Australian curriculum, students develop understanding on how talking, listening, reading and writing, viewing and representing across all key learning areas, as well as significant issues relating to the acquisition of English as an additional language and the needs and interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, can be developed, enhanced and strengthened in the primary classroom. In this subject, students develop an understanding of appropriate teaching strategies appropriate for the primary classroom; the impact of culture, cultural identity and diversity in schooling; and issues related to the specific culture and language learning needs of students in primary education.
