If you have a great screen presence, and are currently teaching languages in a NSW public secondary school, please send us your audition file.
All you need to do is:
1. film yourself reading the following 2 paragraphs, looking into the camera:
Understanding the way languages work through learning another language is unique to our subject area, as we explicitly teach systems of language, including types of texts, grammar and vocabulary. The study of a language develops students’ understanding of how languages work as systems, enhancing literacy skills in the target language, as well as in a student’s first language.
In the language classroom, we discuss grammatical features, sentence construction and the appropriateness of language for differing contexts. We encourage students to use the strategy of drawing comparisons with or highlighting differences from English in order to clarify certain aspects of the target language.
2. complete the attached EOI form (endorsed by your principal).
Filming will take place over one day in early Term 1, with relief provided (and travel/accommodation costs for non-metro teachers).
Please send your video and EOI form to firstname.lastname@example.org (with subject line Video audition) by Wednesday 18 December 2019. The successful applicants will be notified before the start of Term 1.
