The strategies that underpin the CARS & STARS Plus series represent distilled elements of
word and reading comprehension that carry across all year levels. They are introduced in basic
forms in Foundation Year and expanded upon throughout each year level of the program.
This document makes specific reference to individual content descriptions from the
Australian National Curriculum 5.1 for English (ACARA, 2013) that are directly touched upon
in the broad span of the CARS & STARS Plus program.
It is important to remember
that because CARS & STARS Plus are concerned with reading mastery and the gradual
development of important reading skills from the very beginning of schooling it indirectly
touches upon all aspects of English instruction, in particular skills relating to Literacy with
which it is primarily concerned.
Individual stories vary as to content and genre, covering
fiction, reviews, historical articles, essays, opinion pieces, etc. and thus may directly address
different content descriptions in the Literature strands, depending on which story in which year
level is being taught at the time.
