Introduction to the literacy and numeracy progressions - face to face

Purpose

This professional learning is offered to support primary and high school teachers in understanding the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions as tools to support literacy and numeracy development. It assists participants to use the progressions to analyse student work samples from across key learning areas, aligned to syllabus expectations. Teachers reflect on how the learning progressions could support the literacy and numeracy aspirations from their school plan.

Who should participate?

Primary and high school teachers and school leadership teams.

Mode of delivery

Face-to-face

Content

Session 1: Participants learn about the structure and features of the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions, considering their role in enabling teachers to understand student development, monitor growth and inform teaching and learning across the KLAs.

Sessions 2-3: Participants are supported to understand the literacy and numeracy progression elements and sub-elements in more depth. Teachers analyse work samples to identify students' literacy behaviours and to diagnose areas for growth. Participants are also guided to use the Text Complexity Appendix to analyse texts used at their schools, ensuring suitability and enabling the literacy progression to be used meaningfully.

Session 4: Participants undertake guided reflection upon their 2018-2020 School Strategic Plans, considering how the literacy and numeracy progressions can assist them to meet their school's literacy and numeracy aspirations.
