Teaching Support Materials Mandated Materials

The sample teaching and learning outlines exemplify the elements of a teaching and learning program. It is essential therefore to ensure that teachers, when developing a program for their students, should consider:

  • the timing and sequencing of the year level syllabus content
  • the range of learning experiences through which students can apply the knowledge, skills and concepts from the syllabus content
  • the selection of resources to support teaching and learning experiences
  • the implementation of the principles of teaching and learning as articulated in the ‘Ways of teaching’ in the Overview of the syllabus
  • authentic assessments which reflect the year level curriculum content and provide opportunities for students to demonstrate achievement against their year level achievement standard.

For teachers of multi age group classes there are resources which exemplify an approach to planning for teaching and learning in a multi age group classroom. These teacher support materials, supported by an instructional video, illustrate an approach developed by the Authority which consists of a planning diagram, planning templates and sample teaching and learning plans.
