This subject introduces foundational concepts about language and literacy as sociocultural practices, and theories and models of language acquisition and early literacy development. Students will explore contextual factors that impact language and literacy development such as cultural and linguistic diversity, and the influence of globalisation and new technologies on literacy teaching and learning. Students will critically engage with English Curriculum documents to understand the intent and organisation of English through the strands of language, literacy and literature. Students will develop core practices related to collecting, analysing and interpreting data in order to understand children's early language and literacy experiences in a range of contexts. They will connect these experiences to pedagogical approaches that support literacy learning in Years K-2.
