LiteracyPlanet has published a new user guide called LiteracyPlanet & the Australian Curriculum.

LiteracyPlanet’s content is developed by educators and designed to complement and support the teaching of the Australian Curriculum from Foundation to Year 9 and up. The new guide helps teachers understand how LiteracyPlanet is aligned to the curriculum and links each exercise to the associated knowledge, skills and learning outcomes.

Using the guide teachers will be able to see how the content is mapped to the general outcomes and strands of the English Curriculum, and what is available for day-to-day planning.

The guide explains how each key literacy skill area is covered by LiteracyPlanet and includes a comprehensive chapter on content for each year level.

Each chapter includes an overview of content matched to the Australian Curriculum content descriptors, strand and elaborations, followed by exercise lists for each skill area. There are chapters for Pre-School, Foundation, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6, Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9+.

The guide is available to subscribers – in full and by year level – as downloadable PDFs from the Teaching Resources section of the LiteracyPlanet website.
