Literacy and Diversity - EDSE2003

Year - 2018

For many students the reading, writing, numeracy and language of your subject area present real problems. This unit is concerned with subject literacy requirements - specifically reading, language and writing. It explores what skills students need to learn, how to develop such skills and how teachers can bridge the gap between what students know and what they can express. The role of numeracy and mathematical literacy across subject areas are also explored.
