Exciting times ahead

Now I know that all English teachers have no doubt begun to look at the new Stage 6 Syllabus and are thinking about ways they may program for year 11 in 2018. I must admit that programming is one of my favourite things to do, as is working with other teachers who are as excited about programming as I am!

The system of schools that I work in, has come up with a great plan to get teachers from across the system, working collaboratively to write programs which will benefit the entire system of schools. I am so pleased to be part of a system that allows for such opportunities.

The group of teachers that am working with, will create a program around the Reading to Write. On the NESA page it states… ‘Reading to Write (will) develop students’ skills to respond to texts and refine their writing.’ This is a mandatory module to be studied first, by students in year 11.

Will look forward to sharing thoughts and ideas as the project progresses.
