  • As with all literacy learning, at entry-level the demands are still those posed by the complexity of the texts that adults need or want to read, and the tasks associated with those texts (e.g. locating information or following instructions).
  • However, rather than mapping a text against the progressions to see how complex it is and what learners need to do in order to read the text, educators will select texts and tasks that provide opportunities for learners to develop their knowledge and skills.
  • In this respect, the “demand” is controlled by the educator.The knowledge and skills that learners need to develop are the demands that the programme should address.
