Feedback from the last session of this course:
“Extremely well organised day. 1st session was very helpful as it explained the components of the syllabus and the acquiring, processing & communicating parts in a way that could be understood by non-geography-trained novices. The Stage 3 fieldwork session was highly relevant to the unit we will be implementing this term and provided practical examples of how to introduce and carry out fieldwork with our classes. The afternoon session provided us with even more ideas for engaging our students in geographical inquiry by encouraging the ‘big students’ to use some geographical tools. Not only was the day highly informative, well run, creative and engaging but it was FUN! A beautiful setting in a magnificent part of the world. The food provided is exceptional – I have not experienced better at a professional learning day. Overall, a very worthwhile experience! Congratulations and thanks Brewongle EEC.”
“Knowledgeable staff, practical activities and interesting content which can easily applied into teaching/learning context. It was good how the PD focus was appropriately adapted depending on the different stage level being taught. A great way to begin a new term!”
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.
