In Years 7-10, every subject has its own specialised terminology. Students need strong literacy skills both to learn the content of every subject, and to be able to demonstrate their learning in assessment tasks. In this fact sheet, we summarise guidance from the UK-based Education Endowment Foundation and the Australian Evidence for Learning (E4L) Group. . This guidance aligns well with the Australian Curriculum. . We also provide some practical ways that parents and carers can help their children in Years 7-10 to further develop their literacy.
