Parramatta High School is seeking an Indonesian teacher to fill a maternity leave position for 2019. The load is predominately Years 7 and 8 Indonesian, however the role will also require teaching a "taster French" course for a semester to Year 7 (there are lots of resources and support available for this). If interested, please email Lillian Smith (Head Teacher LOTE & ESL) at email@example.com
The NSW Department of Education has developed a new resource to support teachers of Indonesian 7-10.
Waking up in Indonesia embeds the use of online collaboration tools and 21st century learning skills to support students studying the 100-hour mandatory Stage 4 or 100/200 elective Stage 5 Indonesian courses.
Students work collaboratively to research a topic of cultural interest in Indonesia and make a presentation (digital and/or face-to-face) that demonstrates their learning. They investigate key Indonesian words (Stage 4) and conduct an Indonesian Q&A interview (Stage 5) related to their chosen topic.
