Section 1: Australian Professional Standards for Teachers


5

Evaluate the lesson plan according to the following Australian Professional Standards for
Teachers. Only standards directly addressed in Designing Teaching & Learning that are
relevant to this assignment have been included. However, this does not mean the other
standards are irrelevant to lesson planning and evaluation more generally.

Reflection

What have I learned about the teaching and learning process when preparing this
lesson?

In modifying this lesson plan, I found it valuable to think about how to incorporate
Aboriginal culture into the lesson which seemed to be lacking in the original plan.
Further I have also understood and learnt how to critique the strengths and
weaknesses of lesson plans. Theres always room for improvements in any lesson
plan e.g. by comparing it to AITSL and QTL. It is important that the lesson plan also
takes all students into consideration to further promote inclusion and a welcoming
environment.

I found integrating indigenous culture which is a significant part of the curriculum


easy and simply to apply. I also had to think about how to adapt a plan that suited
all levels and styles of learning. As the original plan had no mention of indigenous
culture or students from diverse backgrounds I had to research some suitable
activities to include. Overall, I have found this assignment a lot more challenging
than I originally thought I would, but in completing this lesson plan, I think I have
more of an idea of what is needed to construct a valuable lesson for when I am
teaching and it has also allowed me to grasp a deeper understanding of the
standards and the quality teaching model

Develop an understanding of diversity by using a range of resources (human and


material) within and across social groups. Where they are available, use the
resources endorsed by social groups.

Provide opportunities for students to look beyond stereotypes used to describe


different social groups.

How am I measuring the outcomes of this lesson?

What are the key risk issues that may appear for and need to be reduced/eliminated
in this lesson? Using your syllabus and support documents as well as other WHS
policy- Outline the key WHS considerations that are to be applied in this lesson?

The major potential risk involves the practical component of this lesson
and in particular in any practicals are:
Safe environment, assess all equipment and areas prior to participation,
use a checklist, ensure all students understand rules to decrease risk of
any possible injuries.
Safe and appropriate clothings e.g. enclosed shoes
any item that may cause an injury should be removed
Water
First aid kit
Medication and student record for any illness
18

Academic Justification

The original lesson plan was comprehensive; however there is a scope for improvement within
the Australian Professional standards for teachers (AITSL,2017) for differentiation within the
lesson plan while focusing on students of all abilities and needs such as indigenous students. The
2 identified APST and NSW QT model elements that I was targeting to improve within the
lesson plan were the APST 2.6 Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and 1.4
Strategies for teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students , while the QT models 3.4
Inclusivity and 3.2 Cultural knowledge.

Specific strategies are required when working with indigenous students as part of the curriculum.
Indigenous students are significantly underachieving in all areas of education when compared to
non indigenous Australian (ABS,2017). The cross curriculum priorities emphasises on the
importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and history to further promote
equality and close the education gap (AITSL,2017). Cultural understanding is achieved by the
teacher during the lesson by providing quality education to students, while engaging students
with programs to develop cultural understandings as part of the school curriculum (Bennet &
Moriarity, 2016). It has also been suggested that when teaching students it is important to build
on positive practices such as awareness, attitude and knowledge about cultures in order to deliver
a successful pedagogy (Bennet & Moriarity, 2016).

The improvements also included the use of ICT e.g. to show culturally relevant videos and
photos. In the original lesson plan there was no use of ICT, however I have incorporated ICT
resources for students as the use of ICT can be an effective way to share strategies and skills in
physical activity. The use of ICT e.g. ipads allows students to expand their content knowledge
and learning opportunities (AITSL, 2017). ICT can also be an important strategy for improving
educational practices (Tsitouridou and Vryzas, 2004).

The lesson plan has targeted to focus on the 5 sections within teaching standards list for
professional teaching. The modification made to the lesson plan acknowledges indigenous
students by respectfully involving their culture with respect to literature and findings. The
illustrations of specific indigenous cultural activities e.g. videos and photos has been provided
while delivering the lesson to ensure an effective indigenous pedagogy which includes planning
and visualizing explicit processes through images and scaffolding (8ways, 2016). ICT can be
further easily incorporated within the lesson e.g. by using ipads to watch videos, follow url links
and access teaching resources used in the lesson. Further research suggests that the use of ICT is
an effective tool in education as it is viewed positively amongst students (Kretshman, 2015).
19

It is important for an educator to work with student with respect to their learning needs, abilities
and interests which I have tried to cover in my lesson plan (Handa, 2013). When differentiating
e.g. for indigenous students it is important to not provide an inferior learning experience
therefore I have tried to differentiate to include all students rather than just indigenous student
(Westwood, 2011).

By allowing and rewarding the students to choose a type of indigenous traditional game such as
Keentan, Gorri or Kulchee allows the students some choice in the direction of their learning
which can promote a quality teaching and learning environment (Tadic, Deed, Campbell, &
Prain, 2007). These changes in the lesson plan also benefits indigenous or non indigenous
students as the indigenous students experience a positive sense of self identity and promoting a
culturally responsive teaching , while non indigenous student gain an understanding and
experience indigenous culture ,while also sharing common grounds (Bourke et al., 2000). The
lesson plan involves high student direction which is evident in the lesson while taking student
ideas, suggestions and choices into considerations.

Further indigenous culture has been involved in the lesson plan to acknowledge indigenous
students which has been shown as an effective way to promote positive school culture which
plays an important role in student education (Helm & Lamb,2011). Narrative and metaphors is
applied in the lesson plan e.g. jumping like a kangaroo and running like an emu to further make
the activities more enjoyable as well as providing examples. During the lesson there are
opportunities for student to share stories that may be significant to their culture which allows
indigenous students and students from diverse backgrounds to share their cultural knowledge.

Participation is an important aspect of physical activity therefore by allowing students choice can
increase intrinsic motivation to participate (Alderman,2006). The lesson plan also has variety of
activities rather than just one e.g. combination of indigenous games and traditional sports. It has
been shown that by having variety of activities rather than just one can increase student
participation and motivation (Alderman, 2006).

The traditional indigenous games and activities have been incorporated from Yulnga online
resources which meets the requirements for AITSL standards 1.4 (Yulnga,2017). A YouTube
video along with pictures will be used in the lesson prior to activities to provide examples for
students, while effectively using ITC. Prior to the lesson the traditional custodians of the land is
also acknowledged which is also relevant as the traditional indigenous games involved, while it
can be used at any time by both indigenous or non indigenous people to pay respect (WSU,
Cultural Protocols,2017). This practice is used to demonstrate awareness and respect for
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and recognizing the importance of the traditional
custodians of the land.
