Using the four resources model across the curriculum

Ninetta Santoro

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


This chapter is aimed at student-teachers and practising middle years teachers in the primary school who are interested in developing their students' subject specific literacies in preparation for their transition to secondary school. A number of texts and activities from a popular secondary textbook are analysed and mapped against the four resources model. Learning tasks that develop students as text decoders, texts participants, text users and text analysts are suggested.
