English as an Additional Language or Dialect


Links to Foundation to Year 10

Each senior secondary English subject draws upon, develops and emphasises different knowledge, understanding, skills and processes related to the strands of Language, Literature and Literacy used in the Foundation to Year 10 curriculum. The emphasis differs according to the nature of each subject. While each senior secondary English subject places a different emphasis on the three strands, each subject is expected to advance skills in each of the strands. For example, while students encounter, respond to, analyse and create a wide range of literary texts in EAL/D, the focus of the units is on language learning and the development of oral language and literacy skills in SAE.
