This is the third in a four-unit sequence within the Bachelor of Education (Primary) degree designed to prepare primary school teachers of literacy and English in the information age. This unit examines the development of listening, speaking, reading and writing/creating print, digital and multimodal texts in the middle years of primary schooling (Years 3 to 6). Through fieldwork in middle years learners’ language and literacy learning environments, and engagement with theoretical frameworks, students research the needs of diverse literacy learners and contemporary literacy and English teaching practices in the middle years of schooling.

Students engage with a variety of pedagogical and assessment approaches and explore a range of literacies encountered by middle years learners including visual and digital literacies. Students will also critically analyse and reflect on these approaches and range of literacies to plan effective teaching and learning programmes for middle years learners. Reflection on personal learning and performance is a core aspect of the unit
