Abstract: The aim of a recent whole-school literacy project at a regional Australian secondary school, in partnership with a local university, was 'to show teachers how to embed sequences of explicit literacy teaching into their units of work' in order to help students learn the literacy practices of each subject area (Clary, Feez, Garvey and Partridge 2015, 32; see also Clary and Feez 2105). The school, with an enrolment of approximately 700 students and a staff of around 50 teachers, caters to the needs of students from diverse language and cultural backgrounds and with diverse needs, from high-achieving students to those who experience educational disadvantage.
