The Language and Literacy team provides a range of resources for educators and parents to support children’s development of language, reading and writing. These resources are based on evidence-based research and include videos, recorded webinars and fact sheets. The Language and Literacy team also partners with researchers and universities to deliver research on reading and writing.
The key components of reading and writing are integrated within all learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. They are delivered through teaching practices that emphasise explicit instruction, practice and feedback.
Parents and carers also play a vital part in supporting their children to read.
The videos provide information to support children’s language and reading at home and at school.
