1.Developing Literacy

Link to video explaining essay:

critically evaluate reading and writing strategies and their relationship to curriculum and policy for the early primary context. Specifically, you will need to:
• identify two strategies to the teaching of reading and two strategies to the teaching of writing, as covered in your weekly readings across Weeks 2-9 in the unit (e.g. Shared reading;
modelled reading; guided reading; independent reading) (e.g. Shared writing; interactive writing; guided writing; independent writing)

• critically evaluate each of these strategies. Think about the following questions:
o What particular aspects of reading or writing are supported by these strategies? (e.g. fluency; comprehension; phonological awareness; vocabulary)
o What are the strengths of the strategies?
o What are the limitations of the strategies?
o What key considerations do teachers need to take into account when adopting these strategies? (e.g. Additional learning needs; available resources; environment considerations; student
demographic or abilities; relevance to the curriculum; time limitations/management)

• support your evaluation through the use of examples from the Australian Curriculum and any other relevant curriculum and policy documents (for example NAPLAN or state curriculum).

Write a TWO-PAGE (double spaced) reflection paper incorporating your thoughts about:
1. The article itself- comment on the survey (reflection of all industries, sample size, questions asked, etc.) and the significance of the survey findings.
2. Discuss your perspective of an Engineering Technology degree- did the article and hearing from Dr. Barbieri help to further shape your opinion? How so?
