Oxford Literacy helps students learn to read, build reading fluency, and encourages reading for practice and pleasure. The books support students by reflecting their interests and using words from the Oxford Wordlist, a contemporary high-frequency wordlist researched and developed in  Australia. The titles are levelled to build students’ confidence and help them progress.

Oxford Literacy for students includes:

  • a range of fiction and non-fiction titles  
  • non-fiction titles written for the Australian Curriculum: English, history, science and mathematics, making reading even more meaningful and relevant (levels 1–23)    
  • recurring characters  
  • ebook versions of most titles available on Oxford Owl.  

Oxford Literacy for teachers includes:

  • The Oxford Literacy guided reading notes allow educators to use the series in the classroom in a small-group context. These guided reading notes enable educators to offer scaffolded support to students, providing opportunities for students to apply reading strategies as they move towards reading    independence.  
  • Each Oxford Literacy book has one activity sheet.  
  • Each Oxford Literacy book has one reading record sheet that can be downloaded from Oxford Owl.
