Year 8 Morning: How to plan rigorous and engaging units for post lockdown Year 8s
February 25 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$130
This workshop looks at how to plan and carry out a curriculum for the the 2020 cohort of Year 7s whose introduction to high school was so impacted by lockdown. It focuses on typical units we do at Year 8, and how to do them well, such as persuasive writing and individual text response units, but also suggests units we can teach which allow students to engage in and think about real world issues, particularly those that affect teenagers. This workshop will also show teachers how to teach essential micro skills students will need for senior English such as using analytical language, inserting evidence into writing, pulling apart essay tasks and understanding how to apply specific creative features to their own writing – without units simply become a boring lead up to VCE.
