This teacher resource is about a project to improve reading outcomes for Aboriginal students in years 2 to 7 in the Gippsland and Mildura areas of Victoria. The Expanded Central Gippsland Koori Literacy Project (ECGKLP) involved 123 Koori students from 19 primary schools and one secondary school. It focused on helping teachers develop literacy learning profiles of the students and link their existing cultural and literacy knowledge with literacy pedagogy. The resource details the assessments used for the profiles and the literacy practices employed to build students' literacy. It describes the outcomes achieved, identifies the project's research base and provides links to videos and readings.
