TI-AIE: School–home communication

What this unit is about

Children start school with ideas, languages, knowledge, skills and concepts gained through interaction with others at home and in the community. Their formal learning in school will be more effective when you recognise their linguistic and cultural capacities as key resources for their ongoing development.

In this unit you will explore ways to value and draw upon your students’ home and community experiences in your language and literacy teaching.
