Introduction to the literacy and numeracy learning progressions

Purpose

This one-day workshop is being offered to school leadership teams to develop an understanding of the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions as tools to support literacy and numeracy development across the curriculum. This is the first in a series of workshops across Term 2, 3 and 4 which will provide schools with an opportunity to explore the learning progressions, PLAN2 and Best Start Assessments in Kindergarten and Year 7.

Who should attend?

Schools are encouraged to send a team of up to 3 teachers comprising at least one member of the school executive, ideally the School Principal. https://www.regodirect.com.au/learningprogressionsterm2/

Content

Throughout the day participants will engage with the literacy and numeracy progressions, examining their structure and considering their role in enabling teachers to locate students’ levels of literacy and numeracy development, monitor growth, and inform teaching, learning, feedback and assessment. They will consider the connections between the progressions and syllabuses and the importance of literacy and numeracy in facilitating learning across the Key Learning Areas. Participants will analyse work samples to indicate students’ literacy and numeracy behaviours and to diagnose areas for growth.

Participants will 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.
