    Abstract

    Get Wise is a set of multi-media teaching materials developed within the Australian Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) for low literacy refugee youth and young adult learners. The materials illustrate how a content-based approach can contribute to the learning of English language, literacy and content relevant to the lives of older adolescent and young adult LESLLA learners. While the Get Wise materials were the outcome of a large well-funded project, they demonstrate strategies that can be applied locally by teachers working to meet the needs of older adolescent and young adult LESLLA learners, regardless of the level of funding.
