The Languages and Culture team has published support for teachers 7-10 in implementing the new syllabuses:
- guidelines, which include information and advice on what you need to include in your program
- sample unit of work templates (we will include more samples soon)
- a backward mapping tool to plan your units of work
- information on embedding learning across the curriculum content.
All of the above can be accessed from the languages landing page for Stages 4 and 5 of the NSW Department of Education's website.
Also, we are gradually adding support to each of the language-specific pages, so please check back regularly to see what's new!
