Purposeful Science - Take a dive into the Department for Education’s Science Curriculum resources

Presenter: Meegan Ballantyne (Department for Education) and Kate Dilger (SASTA)


Background information

South Australian teachers are being supported to help bring the national curriculum to the classroom like never before, with one of the biggest curriculum development initiatives ever seen in South Australia being launched.

A group of 37 passionate teachers have been employed over the past year to create a curriculum development program and design classroom-ready resources, drawing from expert advice and the work of around 450 teachers.

The new resources include detailed scope and sequence documents for the science learning area in the Australian curriculum, as well as flexible and practical units of work that teach directly to the curriculum and are designed specifically for South Australian students.

The Workshop

This workshop will unpack an example unit from Year 5, looking at the Why? How? & What? of the unit of work, with the aim of teachers being able to implement the units in their classrooms as they are released.

Teachers will be engaged in purposeful activities that build pedagogical tools as well as an understanding of how to connect classroom learning to the Australian Curriculum.

The workshop will also take teachers through the development of the Scope and sequence documents. These set out what students are expected to learn and when, supporting teachers to appropriately sequence their classroom content in alignment with the Australian curriculum.
