Summary This article discusses the Middle Years Literacy Research Project and its design. The authors report on key findings and recommendations from the research. In particular the authors look at what is distinctive about teaching adolescent learners in middle years and what does the research show that is distinctive about teaching, the ways that literacy is understood and talked about, its various positioning in the middle years and, connections between effective literacy and effective learning. The article describes a Four Resources model as a framework for literacy teaching and learning for middle year education; literacy leadership, coordination, professional development and collaborative partnerships; and, what school strategies have the most potential to bring about long-term change and improvement in students' literacy and learning outcomes.
