Curriculum framework for literacy teaching in Initial Primary Teacher Education

The purpose of this Framework is to provide guidelines for the professional development of competent educators who can teach reading and writing in the various South African official languages. It is aimed at the university teachers, leaders and support staff who are able to facilitate this development, and particularly language and literacy subject specialists. However, role players at all levels will be implicated in the implementation of this Framework. This framework has been presented at two national consultative meetings and is now in its sixth edition. A first consultative workshop on this Framework was held on 25 and 26 January 2019 and this version is the result of revisions based on recommendations from the workshop and other submissions.
