Australia’s national education evidence body

Literacy and numeracy

Literacy and numeracy are critical foundations, equipping students to access learning in all other parts of the curriculum.  

We need a clearer understanding of which students need more support and in which areas. We also need to translate and make high-quality evidence accessible for teachers so they can know how to better support students’ literacy and numeracy across the curriculum.  

Current project 

  • What are the most effective practices for teaching the literacy and numeracy skills that children and young people are struggling with the most? 

AERO is currently developing a literature review and some practice guides on writing instruction which will be published in 2021. We also plan on developing a range of practical resources for teachers that focus on the many aspects of effective writing instruction, to be published in 2022.
