With an emphasis on comprehension, grammar and vocabulary, Nelson Literacy Directions supports students in learning how to use the English language effectively to gain meaning, and confidently create their own texts in a range of modes. Nelson Literacy Directions provides a wide variety of printed and electronic texts for explicit instruction in written language, oral language, visual literacy and oral literacy. The fine grade levelling featured throughout the program provides scaffolded support for students at different stages of learning, enabling them to build on early literacy learning.
The planning and writing of some of these texts pre-date the Australian Curriculum but examination of the materials in Nelson Literacy Directions shows that the general capabilities, cross-curriculum priorities and content from the Australian Curriculum are well supported.
Nelson Literacy Directions titles are organised by Arts, Humanities and Sciences. Many Humanities and Sciences titles support content from the Australian Curriculum: History, Geography and Science. The Arts and some of the Humanities titles support current Arts and HSIE curricula in various states and will potentially provide support for the forthcoming Australian Curriculum in these learning areas.
All big books, levelled texts and exemplar cards within Nelson Literacy Directions 3–6 support the Australian Curriculum: English. Some levelled texts and exemplar cards also support other learning areas within the Australian Curriculum.
