Transforming classrooms through the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus - downloadable staffroom posters

The NSW Department of Education has just published downloadable posters to support language teachers and faculties to articulate what’s observable in classrooms and why these aspects are important, in relation to the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus.

They can be used for teacher self-reflection, lesson observations and faculty discussions.

The aspects include:

  • using the target language to communicate, focusing on a spiral approach to language learning

  • students interacting with spontaneity, exchanging and negotiating meaning

  • content linking directly to students’ personal worlds

  • all students being central to lesson design, with inclusive language, approaches and resources

  • backward mapping of content to allow for strong foundations for future learning.

Download the posters from the Planning, programming and assessing languages 7-10 page - scroll to the bottom of the page, where you see 'Staffroom posters'.
