Description

This subject follows 028250 English Education 1 and focuses on supporting learning for students in Stage 2 and Stage 3 according to the NSW English K–10 Syllabus (Years 3 – 6). The subject links to the Language, Literature and Literacy strands of the Australian Curriculum (English) for Years 3 – 6.

Students explore the development of language and literacy for students in Years 3 – 6, as they move from a focus on Learning-to Read-and-Write to Reading-and-Writing-to-Learn. Literacy across the curriculum is considered, as well as the support for language and literacy development needed as students deal with more challenging content and concepts.

This subject also focuses on the assessment of English and how teachers engage in targeted assessment tasks to reveal learner progress and achievement. Assessment is closely linked to the ways in which teachers use data to inform their planning of appropriate teaching activities.
