Note 12: amplify literacy learning with student voice

​Students who are empowered - through voice, agency and leadership - demonstrate more active participation and deeper engagement in the classroom, school and community.

The acquisition and ongoing development of literacy skills enables students to build their confidence and guide their own learning.

The independent learning and problem solving skills of empowered students are lifelong attributes. Teachers can engage their students in intentional learning activities guided by Amplify practices to extend general literacy skills, develop metalinguistic awareness and build student proficiency in multimodal expressions at all stages of the Victorian Curriculum F-10. 

This professional practice note for school leaders and teachers provides advice and practical examples to engage and empower their students while developing their literacy skills.
