Literacy Learning Goals

The Literacy Learning Goals series offers a differentiated approach that reinforces literacy knowledge for all students in the class, including those who have areas of need, while linking learning between school and home through individualised learning goals. Each book offers goals that steadily build students’ writing skills, including through links with reading and oral language. The school–home connection is strengthened as each goal features in a learning goal sheet that can be included in homework books and readily shared with parents.

Ages: 5-12 years

About the Author

Rebecca Northe is an experienced teacher, facilitator, educator and leader. She believes that maths is more than just knowing basic facts and being able to use varied strategies to solve number problems; for her, a well-balanced mathematics programme includes number and strand knowledge, strategies and opportunities for students to apply what they know when solving application tasks. Through her teaching experience at varied levels, catering for varied needs and stages, Rebecca has seen that many students lack key knowledge and vocabulary required to solve application tasks with ease and confidence. She has worked collaboratively with an array of maths experts and leaders, as well as facilitated sessions in various schools. As deputy principal, she has redeveloped how and what her own school teaches in mathematics to integrate number learning into measurement, geometry and statistics.
