The aim of this study was to gain an overview of how teachers teach literacy, numeracy and language (LNL) in New Zealand, by observing 15 literacy, language and numeracy teachers from tertiary institutions, community organisations, workplaces and private training establishments. The teachers were observed for an average of 167 minutes over two sessions; they were also interviewed after the first observation session. The sample included 1:1 teachers, as well as those who teach in small groups and classes. Data from the observations was recorded on specially designed data sheets; notes were taken by the observers and both the sessions and interviews were recorded wherever possible.
