Rationale • The study of English is central to the learning and development of all young Australians. It helps create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens. It is through the study of English that individuals learn to analyse, understand, communicate with and build relationships with others and with the world around them. • At Riverton Education Support Centre students are provided with a comprehensive literacy program which is one of the priorities for our campus. Many students require Augmentative and alternative communication systems. These (AACs) encompass the communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language. AAC is used by those with a wide range of speech and language impairments, including congenital impairments such as cerebral palsy, intellectual impairment and autism. • Aim • The Western Australian Curriculum: English aims to ensure that students: • Learn to listen to, read, view, speak, write, create and reflect on increasingly complex and sophisticated spoken, written and multimodal texts across a growing range of contexts with accuracy, fluency and purpose • Appreciate, enjoy and use the English language in all its variations and develop a sense of its richness and power to evoke feelings, convey information, form ideas, facilitate interaction with others, entertain, persuade and argue • Understand how Standard Australian English works in its spoken and written forms and in combination with non-linguistic forms of communication to create meaning • Develop interest and skills in inquiring into the aesthetic aspects of texts, and develop an informed appreciation of literature. • Students in the Riverton Education Support Centre will engage in activities at a level appropriate to their intellectual capacity, regardless of chronological age of the students. • Each class to commit to 75mins minimum English block per day. • Preferably between 9.00am-10.30am daily Riverton Education Support Centre
