Description

In Ten Differentiation
Strategies for Building Literacy in the Australian Curriculum
, Jill Spencer
shares effective, proven strategies to engage students in reading and writing
across the curriculum. With the Australian Curriculum in mind, she addresses
the hundreds of decisions teachers must make in a day in response to the
reading and writing needs of their students, and answers important questions
such as:



  • Can
    all of my students read this text? Should I read it aloud to ensure everyone
    gets the information?

  • Students
    don’t like or understand the textbook – what are my options?

  • What
    do I need to know about the Australian Curriculum literacy requirements?

  • I’m
    not a reading and writing teacher. How can I instruct students in these very
    specific skill areas?


These easy-to-use strategies will ratchet up the engagement level
of students by causing them to interact with content in all of their classes at
the high levels required by the curriculum. Jill’s decades of teaching are
evident in her detailed modelling of the applications of the 10 strategies
across the subject areas, and she provides humane, practical suggestions for
incorporating practices driven by the Australian Curriculum. She models a
thoughtful scaffolding of skills based on her knowledge of the development of
young adolescents. Jill weaves ideas for digital learning into each section and
provides ideas for supporting the creative endeavours of students.
