Types & use of sources elaborations in the Australian Curriculum: Science, History & Geography. This is the second of two posts (read the first here) that I have created for a professional development seminar I’m presenting for teachers on inquiry and information literacy in the Australian Curriculum.

Types & use of sources elaborations in the Australian Curriculum: Science, History & Geography

Here I have created word clouds (in Tagul) of the content elaborations related to the types and use of sources the the subject areas of Science, History and Geography. The visualisation demonstrates the strong sense of disciplinarily and topic areas that are not necessarily evident in the content descriptors alone. The images maybe useful for teachers who are developing an integrated curriculum, as the visualisations help in analysing the similarities and differences between the subject areas in the same year groups. As to be expected, there is a different focus in each subject area: Questioning elaborations in the Australian Curriculum: Science, History & Geography. I have prepared this post for a professional development seminar I’m presenting for teachers on inquiry and information literacy in the Australian Curriculum.

Checking students comprehension is one of the things we regularly do in our teaching; but are we doing it in an effective (so as not to say right) way ?

A Must See Visual Featuring 27 Ways to Check Your Students Understanding

Students have different learning styles and vary in the way and rate of their understanding. While some grab it from the first attempt others require much more assistance and in both ways figuring out how much understanding is involved sometimes calls for much more efforts than the teaching itself. Therefore one's teaching arsenal should be diversified and enriched with not only good and working teaching strategies but also effective comprehension check methods. Assessments ( formative, summative,diagnostic..etc ), direct questions, quizzes are some of the common ways to track students understanding but there are also several other ( some are unknown) ways to do it.

Mia from An Ethical Island has put up this wonderful visual that features 27 of these ways. National Simultaneous Storytime.
