Thank you to the 139 teachers who joined for the live statewide staff meeting on Monday afternoon, when we explored 'Interacting in languages'. For those who weren't able to make it, the recording is now live on our YouTube channel and the slide deck is attached.
Previously we have shared what we're excited about with the new Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus (2022). One of these is that the outcomes and content for Stage 5 allow for clearer progression into Stage 6 Continuers. To showcase this for you, we've created 3 infographics – one for each of the focus areas (interacting, understanding texts and creating texts) and highlighted the connections with Stage 6 Continuers outcomes. We hope you find them helpful. You may like to display the set in your staffroom and/or classroom.
On Monday 13 February, the Languages and Culture team will be presenting the first statewide staff meeting for 2023. The focus will be on the Interacting focus area of the new Modern Languages K-10 syllabus. The session will be presented by Professor Florencia Henshaw.
Attached, please find an infographic summarising the role of interacting in the new syllabus.
