Starting on Monday we will all be planning our little hearts out, making sure that we all incorporate our ICTS!! Firstly, lesson planning has been drilled into us since day one about its importance and frankly I don’t know what I would do without it in some instances.
The learning objectives are one thing that has always been stressed to me while on professional experiences, therefore I always make sure I begin my lesson stating what we will have achieved by the end of the lesson. I believe this is a vital component to any teaching practice as it sets the student up for their learning as well as establishes your expectations. Furthermore, the ACARA and QCAA content descriptors allow for the teacher to organise what they want students to learn, in conduction with the use of backwards mapping or other frameworks to organise their ideas.
Take a further look at Abi’s blog post about creating authentic learning experiences!
If you need further information about content descriptors here are the following websites to locate them.
