Programming Resources
General points • Programme and assessment records go hand in hand. Class programs outline the intended teaching. Assessment records describe the learning that took place,(how effective the teaching was for each student). • State requirements are outlined in the state policy and associated policy standards (see below). • Schools prescribe procedures for programming and supervision. Some schools provide core programs that describe school understandings and expectations around pedagogy, content and routines. • Student assessment (formative, summative and assessment as learning) drives programming decisions. • Programs need to focus on describing the learning (literacy/numeracy learning intentions/concepts) to be taught rather than activities to be done by students. • Day books complement the program by detailing activities, resources, flexible groupings for differentiation, timetabling, diary reminders etc. • Programs continue to evolve over time. Programmes are best seen as a work in progress rather than being ‘finished’. Consider setting yourself a goal for each term in order to be continually improving your planning in a manageable way. • Programs are developed for the teacher rather than for supervision requirements. Your programs should support your teaching. If you are not dipping in and out of your program when using your day book, it is not working for you.

DEC Curriculum Planning, Programming, Assessing & Reporting to parents K-12 Home page for programming, assessment and reporting. DEC Numeracy continuum K-10 The site contain great videos which clearly demonstrate student behaviour at each level. A good understanding of the Aspect 2 will make the teaching of Mathematics much easier. See videos DEC Numeracy Continuum (K-6)

This continuum describes the development typically expected of most students in seven aspects : • Counting sequences • Counting as a problem solving process • Pattern and number structure • Place value • Multiplication and Division • Fraction units • Unit structure of length, area and volume

Lesson Format
What: Learning intention – WALT We are learning to….. Do the students know what the point of the lesson is? What is the mathematics concept or the literacy focus for the lesson? How can you communicate it to them in language they can access? Important for teachers to write down in day book, can be quite difficult to articulate learning intention. Why: Connectedness – real world or school world Do the students know why they are learning this? Needs to be early in lesson after the learning intention has been communicated in order to give students a reason to engage. - Mathematics Numeracy - English  Literacy How: Various ways to explicitly teach the concept/focus as below: Tactile/kinaesthetic – Visual – Auditory Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract (particularly Mathematics) Modelled – Guided – Independent  Explicit quality criteria Do the students know exactly what they are to do and how well? Make criteria visual – same place in classroom - same format What: Reflection – revisit learning intention Do the students know what they have learnt?
