Where did Islamic State come from, and what does it really want?

Home. Windradyne. Windradyne (c.1800-1829), Aboriginal resistance leader, also known as SATURDAY, was a northern Wiradjuri man of the upper Macquarie River region in central-western New South Wales.


Emerging as a key protagonist in a period of Aboriginal-settler conflict later known as the 'Bathurst Wars', in December 1823 'Saturday' was named as an instigator of clashes between Aborigines and settlers that culminated in the death of two convict stockmen at Kings Plains. He was arrested and imprisoned at Bathurst for one month; it was reported that six men and a severe beating with a musket were needed to secure him. After some of the most violent frontier incidents of the period, including the killing of seven stockmen in the Wyagdon Ranges north of Bathurst and the murder of Aboriginal women and children by settler-vigilantes near Raineville in May 1824, Governor Brisbane placed the western district under martial law on 14 August.

An EAL student at this stage of schooling may be assessed at a range of levels on the ESL scales Writing and Reading and Responding strands from Beginning level 1 to level 6/7 and Oral Interaction strand from level 1 to level 7/8. Teachers plan a learning pathway for EAL students using the ESL scales outcomes and pointers. Teachers assess EAL students' current level of English on the ESL scales then plan teaching and learning activities to scaffold learning for students working towards the achievement of English syllabus outcomes.

For EAL students to achieve this English syllabus outcome the teaching focus and pathway of learning will be within the Communication ESL scales strand organiser.

This year I stumbled upon a way to redirect them that worked well. As I am circulating and notice that student discussion has veered off track, I hold up my hand, ask for silence, and say, “Goal Check! Right now, each of you think about what you plan to do, say, think, and/or write in the next 15 minutes.” This is their signal to refocus on the task at hand, determine what they—individually and as a group—need to do in the next 15 (or 20, or 30) minutes, and create a short-term goal. The length of time they have to complete the goal is, of course, dependent upon the assigned task and the time remaining for group work. History K–10.
