Beyond the middle: A report about literacy and numeracy development of target group students in the middle years of schooling
The Report, Beyond the Middle: A Report about Literacy and Numeracy Development of a Target Group Students in the Middle Years of Schooling, provides a useful national coverage of approaches assisting the literacy and numeracy development of Australian students in Years 5 to 10.
The work was undertaken by a research team headed by Professor Allan Luke and Professor John Elkins from the School of Education, University of Queensland and is a study of the efficacy of middle years programmes in all States and Territories for improving teaching and learning, and student outcomes in literacy and numeracy.
The project involved large scale national and international literature reviews on Australian and international middle years approaches as well as an analysis of key literacy and/or numeracy teaching and learning strategies being used. Conclusions are drawn in relation to different approaches to middle year policy and frameworks and the need for more coherent approaches to curriculum assessment.
