NSW English Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum
Transcript of NSW English Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum
An increased emphasis on the teaching of literature through clearly defined content and text requirements.
Content is reorganised in a K–10 continuum, which clearly defines processes and skill development. This includes the explicit teaching of contextual knowledge, comprehension, and thinking and reflecting skills and processes.
The K–10 continuum has been developed to demonstrate a clear pathway of learning in English.
The text requirements include experience of contexts, such as intercultural experiences, Aboriginal histories and cultures, Asian perspectives and environmental sustainability.
Foundation statements are replaced by stage statements that summarise the knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes that students develop as they achieve the outcomes in K–6.
Students will continue to -
be actively engaged in the development of skills through speaking, listening, reading, writing, viewing and representing
engage with a variety of different types of texts for different purposes and different audiences
acquire skills of English as an EAL student through explicit teaching and links to the ESL scales
develop the range of skills required to be literate through explicit teaching, a clear continuum of learning and using a variety of strategies.

ASSESSMENT FOR LEARNING
Assessment for learning involves teachers using evidence about students' knowledge, understanding and skills to inform their teaching. Sometimes referred to as ‘formative assessment', it usually occurs throughout the teaching and learning process to clarify student learning and understanding.
ASSESSMENT AS LEARNING
Assessment as learning occurs when students are their own assessors. Students monitor their own learning, ask questions and use a range of strategies to decide what they know and can do, and how to use assessment for new learning.
ASSESSMENT OF LEARNING
Assessment of learning assists teachers in using evidence of student learning to assess achievement against outcomes and standards. Sometimes referred to as ‘summative assessment', it usually occurs at defined key points during a unit of work or at the end of a unit, term or semester, and may be used to rank or grade students. The effectiveness of assessment of learning for grading or ranking depends on the validity and reliability of activities. Its effectiveness as an opportunity for learning depends on the nature and quality of the feedback.
