The framework draws on research into first, second and heritage language development and will include the development of generic and language-specific learning progressions. The progressions can identify student learning and growth in listening, speaking, reading, writing and cultural competence at all Stages of schooling in all sites of learning.
Initially, the language progressions will be developed for Arabic, Chinese and French.
SICLE is seeking 2 primary and 2 secondary teachers for each language to:
- - learn about the progressions
- - moderate student work samples against the progressions
- - adapt and refine the progressions to cater for specific language differences and work samples.
Relief will be available for participating teachers.
If you are interested in participating, please read full details in the K-6 Yammer group (for primary teachers) or in the secondary statewide staffroom (for secondary teachers).
Please indicate your interest by 5 pm Tuesday 8 June 2021.
