Educators share successful strategies for literacy and numeracy at Teach Learn Share


Currently the education community is focusing intently on the issue of how to lift the numeracy and literacy levels of Australian students. Teach Learn Share is a national website helping educators and education systems to share their most effective approaches to literacy and numeracy teaching and learning in Australia. The site contains reports of successful literacy and numeracy strategies implemented in a diverse range of school settings, and provides links to relevant research in the areas of literacy and numeracy. The strategies were submitted by teachers, schools, academics and education systems. Each report on the site documents the key features of the strategy being applied, as well as results, lessons learned, and the next steps planned. The reports also document the research methodology underpinning the strategy, and offer links to resources and additional reading.
