Intended Audience: Science teachers for years 3 - 8

This course develops participants’ capacity to explicitly teach the specific literacy of science at the same time as teaching the science content.

Explicitly teaching the literacy of science: improving literacy to improve science

There are significant differences in the ways Learning Areas use literacy: differences in the types of written texts that students read, speak and write; differences in the ways those texts are structured; and differences in the kind of language features and vocabulary that students are required to know and use.

One aim of teaching Science is that students are able to communicate scientific understanding and findings to a range of audiences. (Australian Curriculum: Science)  Through learning to read, speak and write science texts, students build and deepen their scientific understanding.

This workshop will give teachers new to teaching any SACE Science discipline an opportunity to meet and network with fellow new teachers. The workshop will provide practical information for planning for years 3 to 8 and an overview of the topics as well as examples and discussion around assessment tasks.

Program: 

In this course, participants will learn to:

  • apply and design teaching and learning strategies that scaffold students’ development and control of science literacy
  • provide explicit feedback to students on their writing in science
  • implement reading strategies: before during and/or after reading to draw attention to the language and structure of the text- how it is working to build science knowledge and understandings.

Please note: The course is structured over two days.

Presenter: 

Tony Hole began his career as a primary teacher, before specialising as an EALD teacher. He has worked with primary and secondary teachers across a range of settings to support them to identify, explicitly teach and assess the discipline-specific literacy of their subjects

Tony is passionate about building teachers’ understandings of language and literacy and their capacity to explicitly scaffold and develop students’ ability to comprehend and compose learning area texts, empowering students to successfully build and demonstrate knowledge and understandings across the curriculum.
