This teacher resource is about a strategy to improve the reading and writing skills of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at five public high schools in the Australian Capital Territory. The strategy takes a multi-pronged approach that calls for a focus on explicit core literacy strategies and cultural competency. The resource details the development of cultural competency by the school staff and leaders and the establishment of culturally responsive environments. It describes the quantitative and qualitative outcomes achieved, identifies the strategy's research base and provides references and links to relevant readings.
