The DECD Literacy Secretariat promotes high quality literacy teaching, learning and leadership through a focused approach to literacy improvement from Birth to Year 12 for sites and regions.
The Literacy Secretariat website provides a central resource of information, advice, services and programs aimed at supporting literacy improvement in sites.
This site provides links and information, including local, national and international research programs and initiatives at sites across South Australia.
The DECD Literacy Secretariat has a number of literacy resource papers available on the website. A recent one is a paper recently developed called Reading for Enjoyment and you may be interested in having a look.
It includes some research links establishing why the promotion of reading for enjoyment is important, and ways to develop a whole site and classroom culture of reading. The important role of the library, public library and PRC are also discussed.
