NESA case study -              Developing subject specific language

The Year 4 class teacher is planning a unit of work for the English KLA to support knowledge, understanding and skills of text types relevant to the Science KLA. In developing a whole class program, the teacher needs to address the particular learning needs of one student, Jack.

Acquiring and maintaining new vocabulary can be challenging for Jack. He has some difficulty decoding and spelling words, which in turn impedes his writing fluency. Jack has begun using word prediction software for writing activities.
