So What is New?

  • K-6

    • An emphasis on teaching historical inquiry and skills

    • The use of specified topics and content

  • 7-10

    • Overview and depth studies approach

    • Increased flexibility of content delivery in Stage 5

What are the challenges for a new syllabus?*http http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2BLcv_9apI


Implementation of new syllabuses

An opportunity to refocus on:

learning needs of students in the 21st century

the continuum of learning across K-10

subject matter and learning across the curriculum

differentiated learning

quality teaching

planning, programming and assessment


  • Effective oral and written communication

  • Agility and adaptability

  • Initiative and entrepreneurialism

  • Collaboration across networks and leading by influence

  • Accessing and analysing information

  • Curiosity and imagination

  • Critical thinking and problem-solving

  • 21st Century Skills

What do Students Need in the 21st Century?


Learning across the curriculum

Two main types:

Learning that gives special attention to contemporary issues students will face in their lives

Learning that develops knowledge, skills and dispositions that apply across learning areas


Why do we program?


Preparation

Check the NSW Curriculum & Learning Innovation Centre’s website

Begin planning for implementation of the new syllabuses

  • Include preparation for implementation in school plans.

  • Collaborate with colleagues in your own and other schools through learning areas, cross-curriculum areas and stages of learning.

    Check the Board of Studies website. Note that you can register for Board of Studies weekly bulletins.


Preparation

1. Think about the school and learning community teams that can be built to prepare a curriculum that works for your students.

2. MAP the syllabus and determine what content will

be taught when- skills and engagement sit at the core.

3. Strongly consider assessment for learning as the place to start.

4. Avoid the risk factors- text books, old programs, new programs.


A Planning Approach


How will implementation be funded?
