Description

2022 is a significant year for some secondary schools because in addition to meeting mandated language learning, teachers must also plan, deliver, assess and report using the Western Australian Curriculum: Languages, thus phasing out the Curriculum Framework. The 2022 Ready two-day workshops provide an opportunity for secondary Language teachers to explore the WA Curriculum of both the P-10 and 7-10 sequences for Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian and Japanese.  Features that will be explored in-depth include the three-dimensional nature of the curriculum (General Capabilities and Cross Curricular Priorities), the Strands and Sub-strands, and Content Descriptors. The aims of this professional learning event include:
 
Day 1: 
  • Explore the design of the WA Curriculum, and discuss key concepts and implications for teaching 
  • Evaluate and revise secondary language programs
  • Develop leadership skills and plan for change 
Day 2: 
  • Examine the interests and needs of secondary language learners 
  • Explore strategies for differentiation
  • Explore effective task design and rate task exemplars 
  • Share ideas and network with colleagues
It is expected that teachers attend both days of the workshop. Discount or refunds cannot be given to participants who can only attend one day. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
 
Teachers of second languages that use the Australian Curriculum: Languages (for example Arabic, Auslan, Modern Greek, Spanish, Turkish) are encouraged to also take part in the workshops as a way of deepening understanding of their curriculum documents. However, presentations and exemplars will focus on the syllabuses the six languages of the WA Curriculum.
 
This two-day workshop is a collaboration between AISWA and CEWA. Registrations for repeat session can be made via the hyperlinks below:
