Session One: Curriculum Expert underlines the importance and timing of inquiry based learning; explains the intent of ‘Working Scientifically’ skills in the new syllabus and provides guidance on how to incorporate Depth Study hours and assessment into a Scope and Sequence.
Session Two: Brewongle EEC staff outline their tailored fieldwork investigation based on an environmental inquiry. Participants analyse the program and map the activities to elements of working scientifically and knowledge and understanding outcomes.
Participants are then taken into the field for a first-hand demonstration of working scientifically skills and knowledge and understanding outcomes that the students will be developing during their fieldwork.
Session Three: Using the support and resources provided by the EZEC staff, participants will work collaboratively to draft their own tailored program based on a Stage 6 Science module, incorporating a fieldwork-based depth study. They will also have the opportunity to draft a scope and sequence for assessment purposes throughout the Science course.
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.
