Geography Programming

Support for your teachers at school

Brewongle Teachers have extensive experience writing Teaching Programs for the new Geography Syllabus from Early Stage 1 to Stage 5. We are available to spend time with your staff at school working through the syllabus to create engaging and locally relevant teaching programs in Geography.

These days have been very popular with school teachers and executive as a simple way to support teachers in an area they’re unfamiliar with and a new Syllabus. Teachers finish the session with a complete teaching program for a specific unit along with the understanding and confidence to use it. We can run this session in a half or full day per Stage.

Alternatively, we can support your teachers in a one hour session, unpacking the Syllabus and outlining the important Geographical Concepts, Inquiry Skills and Tools, before reviewing one of our existing Teaching Programs as a demonstration.
