‘Read on – literature resources for diverse learning in Australian schools’ is a positive, practical and engaging set of books which meet the modern teaching needs of English and generalist class teachers. The books link closely with the Literature strand of the Australian curriculum and can be used to meet many of the outcomes at Year 7-9 level.  Book 1 is pitched at years 7—8, Book 2 at years 8—9. They are also highly suitable for students who may be achieving outcomes through general capabilities for Literacy.  This might include students who:

  • have an intellectual disability
  • are learning English as an additional language
  • have diverse learning needs
  • have an autism spectrum disorder
  • are at risk of academic failure

The books contain easy to read and teach examples of many of the content requirements of the English Literature curriculum including poetry

  • fiction
  • non-fiction
  • multi modal texts
  • visual literacy
  • biographies
  • everyday literacy
  • life skills literacy.

The Australian Curriculum reminds teachers of the need to include the works of Australian authors in their English teaching and to consider how content relates to sustainability, Asia and relationship with Asia, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. The ‘Read on’ books make it possible to provide this content at an easily accessible level which encourages a wide range of students to participate fully in all aspects of the English curriculum.
