This course, part of a suite of three English courses for primary and early childhood pre-service educators, provides foundational knowledges to teach English literacy with a specific focus on the needs of lower primary students. Using the Four Resources Model as a theoretical base, this course introduces the `Australian Curriculum: English' and relevant literacy pedagogies, with an explicit focus on linking oracy to emergent literacy, cracking the code of reading, and supporting developing writers. Children's literature is also used to contextualise English literacy learning through `read alouds' and shared book experiences in multimodal platforms.
