Australian Curriculum English Literature Recommended Book List
Posted by Lisa Hill on May 29, 2011
Australian Children’s Literature is recognised around the world as being rather special, and so with the new Australian Curriculum taking shape, it’s timely to set up a list of recommended titles with which to implement the Literature component of the English curriculum.
I’ve set up a page where, though comments from visitors to this blog, a list of titles recommended for primary levels Foundation to Year 6, can emerge and be easily updated. While for me, literary and aesthetic qualities of the book are a pre-condition for inclusion in this list, I am hoping that suggestions will include links to other areas of the curriculum where they are relevant, and will support the three priorities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait histories and cultures; Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and Sustainability.
I am especially keen to hear about titles which originate from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia.
Please visit the page and contribute your suggestions by making a comment.
Thanks to Jo Sherrin from the Northern Territory for the idea!
