The program emphasises and highlights the importance and use of:

  • rich texts, particularly subject-based texts, multi-modal texts and the types of texts that interest and motivate learners in the middle years
  • rich talk of the kind that encourages them to 'show their thinking' through talk
  • 'deliberate' teaching that involves planning for explicit instruction through modelled, guided and independent teaching
