Transcript of Teaching HSC PDHPE

Things to consider :- Knowledge base
Do you really KNOW your stuff? How familiar are you with the Stage 6 syllabus? There is the potential for stage 6 students to throw some pretty curly questions out there. Make sure you aren’t reading up on material the night before you are teaching it. With that said, don’t be afraid to learn with your students. You can always Google something on the spot if the need arises. HSC TEXT BOOKS- IS THERE A BEST CHOICE? Access to resources
There is an abundance of resources to help you teach the HSC. Four text books are dedicated to the HSC PDHPE course, plus hundreds of specific websites, apps and other Web 2.0 tools. Some of the more helpful ones are detailed in a later section. Teaching HSC PDHPE Accountability
The HSC course is generally considered the pinnacle of teaching in our subject area. As a result, the HSC results your cohort receive WILL BE analysed by your Principal. As well as State averages, there are also value-added scores and regional comparisons. You may be asked to consider strategies for improvement and justify what measures you took to maximise the performance of your students. For example, what approach can a teacher take to reduce Band 1 and 2 results, or how did you try to increase band six results? Capacity to differentiate curriculum
Although the content directly reflects the syllabus, you will probably find that there is a diverse range of capacities and interests amongst your HSC cohort. The reality is that we basically teach two subjects in one (one related to human performance and one related to health). As a result, the stereotypical ‘jock’ students will generally be able to apply their sport experience to Core 2/IP content, whereas those less sporty students may have greater difficulty providing practical examples. High NESB schools will also need to cover specific PDHPE literacy and develop the writing techniques necessary for successful performance in HSC PDHPE. Faculty Size and Experience
The size and experience of your faculty will either enhance or inhibit your opportunity to teach the HSC course. In a really large faculty, there are generally quite a few highly experienced teachers who have successfully taught the HSC multiple times. Depending on how many classes your school runs each year, this may decrease the chance of ‘Getting a Guernsey’. Professional Development
There are usually a few TPL opportunities available that focus on teaching the HSC. In addition, the annual PDHPE Teachers Conference is another great experience to enhance all aspects of your pedagogy.
DATES Increased workload
Without doubt, the workload regarding preparation and marking is much greater than when teaching junior classes. Be prepared! Additional techniques
Taking an HSC class involves much more than simply teaching syllabus content. Verb scaffolding, techniques for answering multiple choice and extended response questions and the use acronyms, mindmaps etc are vital to ensure the success of your students. Firstly, always remember
the syllabus is your... If in doubt, always refer back to it.
Make sure your students know it too! # pegeeks

Seek Advice
If you do get a call to duty, you should utilise the skills and experience of the teachers around you as much as possible. This includes your faculty, teachers in other schools and external sources. EVERY FACULTY SHOULD HAVE A MONITORING FOLDER (CHECKED BY THE HEAD TEACHER) TO ENSURE YOU ARE 'ON TRACK'. Text books are only ONE resource. As Renee West recommends, "don't rely on text books and make sure students don't either- they date in less than a year. Maintain currency and relevance for connection and student learning. Final Tips Build strong relationships and rapport with your students. Know how they learn, what they want and need from the subject and you. They place more value on you than you will ever realise!"
