Why use the Accelerated Literacy pedagogy?

  • Accelerated Literacy gives you a routine for planning, teaching and learning and assessment
  • It gives you tools to be explicit in teaching reading and writing in all subject areas
  • It helps you teach literacy skills within a relevant, coherent, meaningful context, rather than teaching literacy skills in isolation
  • Accelerated Literacy gives you the flexibility to cater for the high performers as well as the low achievers
  • It helps you to be systematic and explicit in teaching spelling
  • It is appropriate for all year levels
  • You can use the Accelerated Literacy teaching routine to create the core of literacy instruction, but still have plenty of time for consolidation and application
  • In a whole school setting, Accelerated Literacy gives you a common language for talking about literacy, and your school literacy improvement strategy
  • Accelerated Literacy is well-aligned with the Australian English Curriculum.
