STEP ONE

GENERATE YOUR KEYSTONE QUESTION AND YOUR LEARNING QUEST (PROJECT-BASED LEARNING)


KEYSTONE QUESTION

This is the BIG BROAD AND STUDENT INITIATED LEARNING you are focusing on with your class around the term's focus.

STEP TWO

INTEGRATE MULTI-DISCIPLINARY LEARNING TO GROW DEEP UNDERSTANDING


STEP THREE

Now plan for your routine - so you organise the learning progression.  Remember, there are only six weeks!


Weekly Outline

Outline the weekly schedule below:

Week Zero - Challenge Week

Week One

Week Two

Week Three

Week Four

Week Five

Week Six

STEP FOUR

HOW CAN YOU USE EXPERIENCES AND "LEARNING LENSES" TO FOCUS ON MAKING REAL AND ENGAGING - IS LEARNING LIFE-WORTHY?


Learning Experiences

Learning Lens - how we focus on teaching holistically

STEP FIVE

USE THE VAST MODEL TO CONSOLIDATE THE QUALITIES FOR A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE.


VAST - Sprouting qualities for success

STEP SIX

CAN YOU USE REAL PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES TO PLACE THE LEARNING IN CONTEXT - THE AHAA MOMENT.


Target our preferred six experiences to offer understanding of abstract concepts in context - real world learning.  You may not offer all six each term, but you should look to offer all six over a semester.  This is about making learning hands-on, fun, real and engaging.

STEP SEVEN

HOW CAN YOU USE THE LOCAL TO BE YOUR GUIDE? 


EXCURSION OR INCURSION?

Considering an excursion this term?

Or think about someone in the community - perhaps an artisan or even a parent - who you can draw into the learning program for the term.  We want our students to identify learning outside of the 'school' boundaries - and to establish networks of support.

STEP EIGHT

YOU ARE LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR APPLYING ADJUSTMENTS TO MEET THE INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF TARGETED STUDENTS. ADJUSTMENTS LEAD TO DIFFERENTIATION.

How are you differentiating to meet individual learning needs?
