Zoe Pyke's curator insight, August 27, 2013 6:17 AM

A site that is dedicated to providing resources and programs to teachers to assist with teaching Asia Literacy.

 

Asia Literacy is a requirement of the cross curriculum priority set by the ACARA and so this resource will be very helpful in finding ways to integrate this into lessons.

What is Asia literacy?

The idea of Asia literacy is that by the time they leave school, a strong cohort of young Australians will speak an Asian language and all young Australians will have foundational and deep knowledge, skills and understanding of the histories, geographies, arts and literature of the diverse countries of Asia.
