This coming week our teachers will be meeting to discuss their individual goals relating to the teaching standards outlined by NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority). These goals may include for example, the development of critical thinking skills, visual learning and formative assessment. In addition to these individual goals, the school has an overall goal related to differentiation within the classroom. The aim of differentiation is to help meet the many levels of learning and learning styles in any one classroom. Working on these goals helps to maintain a high standard of teaching practice and to continue to develop new skills.
It is inspiring to see the work on these teaching goals manifest in each classroom in so many different ways.
