Investigating model texts for learning, by Sally Humphrey and Emma Vale

Investigating model texts for learning is designed to support teachers in utilising model texts to achieve a range of key learning goals across the primary curriculum. By examining model texts across a range of year groups and types, you'll learn how to: identify language and image patterns for context; be guided in selecting, composing and analysing model texts for the primary classroom; and explore ways to integrate literacies in curriculum instruction and assessment.

An EAL/D Handbook:
Teaching and learning across the curriculum when English is an additional language or dialect

Helen Harper and Susan Feez (Editors)


Nearly half (45%) of all young people in Australia aged 12 to 24 are first- or second-generation migrants. Providing our EAL/D students with the teaching they need to succeed at school is critical to the quality of their integration into community, and for access to opportunities to achieve future goals. In this book, readers are invited into seven classrooms, where teachers share illustrations of practice designed to enable EAL/D learners to engage with curriculum. With contributions by Brian Gray, Beverly Derewinaka and Jenny Hammond, among notable others from the field of language education, mentors provide academic context to support transfer to other settings, and an introduction by Susan Feez and Helen Harper offers a thorough overview of EAL/D teaching and learning practice.
