TLF ID S7074
This teacher resource describes a pilot implemented in 76 public schools in Victoria, including primary, P-12, and secondary schools in two rural and regional and two metropolitan clusters. The pilot aimed to improve the literacy and numeracy of students in low socioeconomic status communities. This included new arrivals, refugees, Aboriginal students, and students with English as an additional language. The resource is organised in nine sections: Summary, Target student group, Method, Results, Lessons learned, Next steps, Research base, Further reading and links, and Contacts. It identifies the pilot's multifaceted focus on five areas of reform and highlights the importance of a whole-school and cluster approach.
