The Australian Government's Flexible Literacy for Remote Primary Schools Program supports the improvement of literacy results for children in remote primary schools with the introduction of two instructional teaching approaches: Direct Instruction and Explicit Direct Instruction.
On this page:
- Direct Instruction - students are grouped according to ability rather than age and follow individual learning plans. They progress when they reach each level of competence and the structured lessons can be used by all teachers.
- Explicit Direct Instruction - the teacher focuses on explanations, demonstrations, feedback and practice until the student is proficient in the skill.
The program is managed by Good to Great Schools Australia.
To see which schools are participating in the program see the Schools List.
For more information see the Program Guidelines.
