This unit provides pre-service teachers with a comprehensive, integrated overview of literacy learning with a particular focus on identification and diagnosis of learning difficulties in literacy. The unit integrates theory and research with practical application and provides strategies for diagnosing reading and writing difficulties with suggestions for supporting learners in improving their literacy. In turn, it provides the meaning and rationale for practical ideas and activities. This presentation of theory, research, and practical ideas will provide pre-service teaches with a comprehensive, professional foundation to guide practice. Pre-service teachers will also look at assessment ‘of learning’, assessment ‘for learning’ and assessment ‘as learning’ as a framework for thinking about intervention in literacy learning.
