Introduction

Advancing literacy learning with books and films

Audio Visual Achievement in Literacy, Language and Learning, or AVAILLL for short, has been successfully used in schools in New Zealand since 2008 and is now being taught in Australia. AVAILLL aims to increase a student’s abilities in comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, spelling and attitudes toward reading and does so in a way that is novel and exciting.

“The positive attitudes to reading it has engendered and the growing confidence in the kids, has already made it very worthwhile for me and my classes.”Teacher, Papanui High School
AVAILLL is an internationally recognisied research-validated reading enhancement programme that uses popular films, based upon books, to successfully teach reading skills to students in Years 5-10.
