New planning guidelines for modern languages
To support you with your planning and programming for the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus, the NSW Department of Education has just published the following documents:
Programming guidelines for the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus (these were published in Term 2 but have been updated to reflect additional support)
Unit of work guidelines and sample template for the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus
Assessment guidelines for the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus.
The guidelines are available on the Planning, programming and assessing languages 7-10 web page.
This suite of resources provides comprehensive, step-by-step advice to support language teachers from all contexts across NSW to plan and program with the new syllabus. We recommend reading them in conjunction with a sample unit of work, so you can see the advice ‘in action’, for example French or Japanese - even if you don’t teach these languages, you can still review the sample units for contextualisation of the guidelines.
