There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
In this subject, students develop understandings of the literacy and numeracy needs of all learners, with a particular focus on the needs of English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) learners. This requires knowledge which relates to key linguistic and mathematical concepts, to the relationship between language and cognition, and to psychological and sociological perspectives of learning.
Each subject area has its characteristic ways of making meaning through language and mathematical concepts/symbols. Students develop their awareness of the subject-specific nature of literacy and numeracy, and on this basis create lessons which enhance their learners' capacity to use English and mathematics within that subject area.
Through developing students' capacity to teach literacy and numeracy across the curriculum, this subject contributes to learners' academic progress, their overall functional literacy/numeracy, and thus their participation in society.
