The following are excerpted from the Australian Curriculum [ACARA] (2013):

‘The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008) recognises literacy as an essential skill for students in becoming successful learners and as a foundation for success in all learning areas. Success in any learning area depends on being able to use the significant, identifiable and distinctive literacy that is important for learning and representative of the content of that learning area’ (p.1).

‘Paying attention to the literacy demands of each learning area ensures that students’ literacy development is strengthened so that it supports subject-based learning. This means that

all teachers are responsible for teaching the subject-specific literacy of their learning area
all teachers need a clear understanding of the literacy demands and opportunities of their learning area
literacy appropriate to each learning area can be embedded in the teaching of the content and processes of that learning area’

(pp. 1-2).

Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority [ACARA] (2013).
