l iteracy and language demands of the curriculum
Literacy and language demands of the curriculum
  • Language fundamental to thinking and learning
  • Reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing/visual skills and the skills required to communicate information in a range of subject-specific forms, can be thought of as an interactive tool set or kete required by all curriculum areas.

Increasingly complex, abstract and specialised
  • Texts longer
  • Text purpose and style varies across subject areas
  • Structural complexity increases
  • Word complexity increases – specific vocabulary
  • Sentence complexity increases
  • Graphic and/or visual representations more important
  • Conceptual challenge increases
    • students are required to read across multiple texts
    • locate, analyze, evaluate and synthesise information and ideas
    • present them in increasingly sophisticated ways

  • critically analysewhat has been read
  • synthesise … opinions/insights/points of view

culturally responsive pedagogy
Culturally responsive pedagogy
  • Bishop, R., Berryman, M., Cavanagh, T. and Teddy, L. (2007)A culturally responsive pedagogy of relations is one where teachers … develop learning–teaching relationships where:
    • power is shared
    • culture counts
    • learning is interactive/dialogic (collaboration, co-inquiry)
    • connectedness is fundamental to relations: school/community aspirations are aligned
    • Excellence is a common vision
                  • (Bishop et al, p.25)
