Presented by: Pam Burton

Event Information: 6 PD Hours

Download Brochure

This workshop will guide teachers to use the Australian Curriculum to effectively and rigorously plan a unit of work that begins with the big ideas, skills and core concepts identified in each learning area of the Australian Curriculum. Participants will use this knowledge to link to the content descriptors and Standards to ensure a comprehensive and holistic process is followed. This process moves away from following a text book or activity based approach to planning and delivering learning to a more contemporary approach that assists teachers to deliver a guaranteed and viable curriculum in line with the intentions that underpin the Aus/VELS.

Steven Covey argues that we should begin with the end in mind, this program follows this approach.

This workshop will explore the following

  • How to effectively use Aus/VELS to plan curriculum
  • How to focus on big ideas, core concepts and skills
  • How to design a curriculum that addresses a range of learners needs
  • How to link your curriculum to common assessment tasks
  • How to engage students in monitoring and tracking their learning

Participants are invited to bring a current unit of work and associated assessment tasks as well as a computer
