Teaching and learning

Embedded in our classroom practice are a variety of strategies that cater for all learners.  They include gifted and talented strategies – compaction, tiered tasks, differentiation, higher order thinking, and passion learning; as well as, direct, interactive, indirect and experiential practices which are determined by the key learning area or student needs. 

  • Direct teaching practices include explicit teaching, drill and practise, intensive teaching and structured overviews.
  • Interactive teaching is about whole class discussions, cooperative learning and peer partner learning.
  • Indirect teaching includes inquiry based learning and problem based learning.
  • Experiential learning focuses on field excursions, role play and process drama.

Teachers carefully consider the best ways to teach a topic or concept based on prior learning, curriculum demands and student need.
