The English Domain focuses on three Dimensions – Reading & Viewing, Writing and Speaking & Listening. Within the English Domain students are given the opportunity to appreciate the power of texts to evoke emotion, develop understanding and communicate knowledge. They access and design multimodal texts and develop accuracy, fluency and understanding to provide purpose.
Students are exposed to this content through the Early and Middle Years models of Literacy. Within these models classrooms provide individual and small group work targeted for specific skill acquisition in reading, grammar, spelling, writing, speaking and listening. As students develop their knowledge they are supported through Guided, Modelled and Shared activities to foster understanding.
