The project investigates three related questions:What types of literacy skills and strategies in English do students have upon being admitted into junior secondary education in Botswana? What kind of literacy instruction is provided at the junior secondary level to support learning across content areas in school and to provide adequate skills for further study,training, or work life? How do literacy assessment practices support teaching and learning in the junior secondary schools? It is necessary to investigate these weighty questions in order to improve the quality of literacy learning in English,and in other content areas in the secondary school in Botswana.
