We’re in the process of trying to design an online Learning Outcomes configurator. You’ll be able to select all of these options from drop-down menus and create the learning outcomes you want to embed the literacy and numeracy that your learners need into your own context. Until this is online, here’s the manual version.
- Choose a word on the left to frame the kind of learning.
- Choose a phrase on the right to add the focus area for literacy.
- Add your own specific context.
Any learning outcomes here reference content within the vocabulary progression of the Read to Understand strand of the Learning Progressions.
