What should I do to support students' literacy/numeracy needs?

This PD program has so far focused on 'laying the groundwork' for supporting students' literacy/numeracy needs. At this point you have:

  • identified the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of units you have to teach
  • listed the workplace LLN skills relevant to your industry (and used these to customise your units of competence), and
  • identified learners who may need support to meet the LLN requirements.

In this section (and its three sub-sections) you will:

  • focus on a variety of teaching strategies which you can use to assist the development of your students' language, literacy and numeracy skills
  • review the learning resources you use, to make sure they match, rather than exceed the competency specifications, and do not set up unnecessary barriers to students' learning
  • review your assessment strategies and materials to ensure they are appropriate to the unit, and do not make undue demands on your students' LLN skills.

To continue, hover your mouse over the highlighted button in the menu, and select each of the sub-menu items:

  • Teaching the literacy/numeracy requirements
  • Reviewing learning resources and tasks
  • Reviewing assessment strategies and materials.
