Learning progressions and PLAN2 in secondary schools
About the Secondary school pilot
The pilot explored how secondary schools might use the learning progressions and PLAN2 to support and monitor students’ literacy and numeracy development in the context of NSW K-10 syllabuses.
The models and accompanying interviews show how five of these schools have used these tools within their context.
Teachers can use these resources as guides in the development of whole-school approaches to literacy and numeracy learning in their schools.
