Unit Planning In English For The Australian Curriculum
Implementing the Australian Curriculum in English doesn't need to be another tiresome exercise in curriculum compliancy. It can, in fact, be an an opportunity for meaningful regeneration of your Year 7-10 courses. Unit Planning in English for The Australian Curriculum is not simply another book that offers a template for unit design. This book is about the type of units we can create and how these units can respond effectively to Australian Curriculum standards in English. Each chapter of this book looks at a different unit type in detail: Thinking About The Big Idea; Understanding Genre and Text Type; Responding To Texts; and Being Critically Aware. Unit Planning in English for The Australian Curriculum provides specific examples of each different unit type as well as practical teaching strategies and ways each unit can be assessed. Importantly, this book provides a comprehensive list of suggestions about different texts that can be used to meaningfully engage with the cross curriculum priorities of the Australian Curriculum and the English standards which require multimodal texts to be taught. As part of its chapter on teaching grammar for the Australian Curriculum, this resource also includes a copy of How To Teach Grammar and Punctuation in Context Meaningfully.
