Literacy is an important part of children’s education. Put simply, literacy is a person’s ability to read and write. Literacy is a general capability in the Australian Curriculum, which states students develop a good level of literacy “as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school”. Students can develop their literacy skills by “listening to, reading viewing, speaking, writing and creating oral, print, visual and digital texts”.
