Full implementation of the English curriculum can be accomplished as a result of this workshop as backward design programming is used with the achievement standards.

The holiday workshop will take participants through a backward design planning process that begins with goal setting utilising the achievement standards. The focus is on embedding explicit assessment practices throughout the unit of work so that informed decisions about progress and achievement can be made with authentic assessment data. The context will be English and literacy but the workshop outcome of improved programming skills will be applicable to any learning area planning.

Please note: schools are encouraged and invited to contact AISWA to have this workshop take place in their school.
