I'm about to begin my last prac & I'm doing a module on reconciliation with a Yr 8 SOSE class. Does anyone have any resources or links on reconciliation that would be helpful? I've been through the main reconciliation sites like reconciliation/sa/org.

Just thought i'd add this community as im currently in the process of enrolling for my University course; Bachelor of Education (Secondary)/Bachelor of Arts.  

I'm still not 100% sure if Teaching is what i want to do. I spose i'll just have to wait and see...

If, and when, i complete my double degree, im hoping to teach in the country areas of South Australia. I have no interest in Teaching in the Metropolitan are, as i've grown up in the country and prefer that.

K, thanks for the add, btw.

Subject Overload
Ok so this community is taking a little to get up and running...please spread the word, the more people the more active and benifical this community will be for all.

To the topic

In yesterday's paper there was an article regarding the overloaded curriculum in primary schools, I was just wondering what the general thoughts on this are. Should we be expected to teach children things like ethics? Nutrition? and other types of subjects that were usually taught at home. Are we now cutting the school day to fine. We know children need at least an hour to become actively engaged in play how do we split the 8 curriculum areas up in a week when we need at least a 1 block hour at a time for each?

The article I'm referring to is in Saturday's Advertiser on pg 44 headlining 'Lessons Galore- too little time I tried to find the article online but couldnt find it.

First post
Hello fellow educators,

I just thought I would write a little about why I have created this community.

I am currently a 2nd Year student at Uni SA Studying a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education, after some discussion with my peers I realised that I wasn't the only one panicking about going out to the work force in 3 years time. We discussed how we don't feel that we are really learning how to teach and that we are just being taught how to be politically correct.

We understand that prac placements are for "learning how to teach" but we didn't feel like this we enough. We know that SACSA is the curriculum that we have to follow but at this point we're not sure if we get taught how to read that document. Were also aware how broad the terms are in there and were worried that even by following it we may do the children in our care injustice and not teach them all they need to know whilst in our care.

I have created this community for student teachers and teachers alike to post questions and answers ideas and lesson plans that work well to help get the best for the children of South Australia and Australia. Please remember to give as well as take, no ideas are stupid (and your virtually anonymous on here anyway)

Please keep this an open minded forum to discuss any teaching queries and ideas and you never know you may get some great ideas.

Thanks everyone and please enjoy!
