'If students can't learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they learn' (Ignacio Estrada, via Tomlinson)

Australian Curriculum Planning Templates

These planning templates are for use during the implementation phase of AusVELS in 2011.  

The planner enables a unit to combine compatible content and skills from the Australian History/Science Curriculum and the three Priorities with the Victorian Essential Learning Standards for Humanities/ Science AND relevant interdisciplinary learning from VELS Personal Learning, Interdisciplinary Learning, Thinking Processes.  Some aspects of VELS and Australian English curriculum are also included.

They are based on V2 of the Australian Curriculum (October 2011) and AusVELS (November 2012).

When VELS is replaced by the AC in 2012, the VELS Humanities/History/Science components can simply be deleted, while the Personal, Interpersonal and Thinking Processes elements can be retained until there is an AC replacement for them.

      Hello Fiona, thank you for dropping by and taking the time to comment.
      in Victoria, that’s partly because there is a union ban on implementing it. I hope that sorts itself out soon, but I also hope that other teachers are working on this and that and are sharing what they have!
      Do you know of any schools that have designed a two-year curriclum suitable for composites?
