Australian Curriculum Literature & Research units for the Primary Library


 UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Templates for planning with the Australian Curriculum during the Transition phase 2011-2012.

These templates combine elements of the Australian English Curriculum with the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) Thinking Processes, Personal Learning and Interpersonal Development Domains.

Australian Curriculum Units currently under construction (as of Jun 2011)

These units will be available for download late in Term 2 or during the Term 2 holidays after I have finished teaching them and (hopefully) ironed out the bugs.

Units being updated from existing VELS units (see below)

VELS Units (pre 2010)

NB These units are in various stages of development. I am not very interested in tidying things up for publication, so they are not exemplary units, but just the way they were when I last designed or edited them. (Every time I teach a unit, I change something.) Feel free to use them, but please acknowledge their authorship, and email me via the comments box below if you would like to share some of your resources in return.

BTW Many of these units have hyperlinks to my work program or worksheets I have made. I can’t be bothered uploading all of these…send me a comment with your request, and I’ll send it to you.

Personal Learning Journals

At the end of every library lesson, my students self-assess their behaviour. The statements are based on VELS indicators or from the learning focus in Personal Learning and Interpersonal Development domains. It is a quick and easy way to support students to reflect on how their behaviour affects their learning.

PS If you find any of these resources interesting and decide to download them, could you please leave a brief comment? This page generates lots of traffic, but without any feedback, I don’t know who the visitors to the site are, so I don’t know whether to bother adding more resources to it.

    I am a new teacher/ Librarian. I am qualified as a Music Specialist and currently work two days. One day Music, one day Librarian. As a ‘newy’ I’m looking for all the help I can get to make learning and literacy in the Library FUN! Thank you for sharing your work with others. I am just having a preliminary scan of your site today but will possibly revisit. Tanya
