This will be a series of Masterclasses taking place over 5 days in order to prepare students for the demands and expectations of VCE.
For 3 hours every day, over 5 days, students will gain an early introduction to VCE Greek. They will find out from our expert teachers exactly what to expect in VCE in terms of their assessments and what each assessment will aim to evaluate.
Each day of the series is going to focus on a different aspect of the VCE Modern Greek Curriculum.DAY #1 – Monday 21st of January 2019 – VCE Greek Study Design [Duration 3 hours]

 

On the first day, students will have the opportunity to hear our expert teacher unfold the current VCE Greek Study Design. The Learning Goal of this Masterclass is for students to understand the expectations and demands of the current VCE Greek Study Design. 2019 is the last year of the current Study Design as 2020 will bring the introduction of a new one. It is therefore crucial that students have a clear picture of the expectations of the current Study Design during its last year in effect.✅ Current VCE Study Design and Proton Notes Provided

DAY #2 – Tuesday 22nd of January 2019 – Essay Writing [Duration 3 hours]

The second day of the series is going to concentrate on essay writing.

The Learning Goal of this Masterclass is for students to learn how to use some of the Key Features of each text type and writing style.
We will be covering the most common text types we see in VCE exams and SACs as well as the 5 writing styles assessable under the current Study Design. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to work on idea development and structure.
Proton Essay Writing Materials Provided

DAY #3 – Wednesday 23rd of January 2019 – Grammar (Verbs) [Duration 3 hours]

 

The third day of the series is going to focus on grammar and in particular the use of verbs.

The Learning Goal of this Masterclass is for students to understand the difference between voices and tenses and to be able to apply them. Over the past decade, VCE Examination Reports have identified that students who sit the VCE Greek exam face difficulties with their grammar and, in particular, tense agreement and the use of passive voice. The Masterclass will explore these phenomena and students will have the opportunity to get a better understanding of them.

Proton Grammar Materials (Verbs) Provided

DAY #4 – Thursday 24th of January 2019 – Grammar (Nouns & Adjectives) [Duration 3 hours]

The fourth day of the series will also focus on grammar and in particular the use and agreement of adjectives and nouns. The Learning Goal of this Masterclass is to understand the differences of each case and how adjectives and nouns can form and agreement with each other. For more than a decade, VCE Examination Reports have identified adjective and noun agreement as one of the most common mistakes students make in their exam. The Masterclass will explore these phenomena and students will have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of them.


Proton Grammar Materials (Adjectives & Nouns) Provided
DAY #5 – Friday 25th of January – Exam [Duration 3 hours]


The fifth and last day of the series will be concentrating on Exam Writing Skills.

The Learning Goal of this Masterclass is for students to identify the skills that exams require and appreciate their importance. On the last day of #HEADSTART students will be sitting an exam in order to see what sitting an assessment under examination conditions is like. At the end of the exam, students will be provided with an analysis of the exam as well as tips and tricks they can use during VCE when writing assessments or when sitting the exam.

Goal Setting to Make Learning “Visible”

Proton Tutoring ServicesThis week, Proton teachers had the opportunity to participate in a professional development seminar on “visible learning”; the theory by John Hattie (2012) that students are more likely to be invested in their learning, if they perceive learning to be feasible, accessible and attainable.

It was a seminar that emphasised how simple teacher practices and routines can have a great impact on the students’ learning perception and process.

A simple strategy that we encourage all of our fellow teachers to implement is to set a clear, simple and achievable learning goal for the lesson or the session. The learning goal needs to be simple, so that it can easily be understood by students. A lesson, depending on its duration, should not have more than one or two learning goals.Success-Criteria

If you need help setting your learning goals, the following questions can help you:

  1. What is to be learnt during this session?
  2. Why is it important to learn This?
  3. How is the learning of This linked to bigger ideas/concepts studied?
  4. What are the success criteria? – the criteria that show that the goal has been achieved/ that This has been learnt?
  5. What will students say/make/write/do that proves they have learnt This?
  6. How are the learning activities/tasks/work relevant to the success criteria of the learning goal?

Every subject can have multiple learning goals that are focusing on a number of areas. For instance, some learning goals focus on knowledge, whereas some goals focus on skills and/or understanding.

For more assistance on how to set your learning goals, please visit: assessmentforlearning.edu.au

Once the learning goals have been set, it must be clearly communicated to the students.

This can be done by simply writing it on the board, so that the goal of the lesson is literally “visible” to the students. Although teachers are always pressed for time, it is definitely worth the one or two minute investment at the start of the lesson to explain to the class why this goal is important.
Why?

It is our responsibility as educators to provide a satisfactory response to the students’ question “Why are we doing This? Why are we learning This”?

We need ensure that they understand the learning goals and their importance.

If you are ever in doubt, there is no harm in checking the students’ understanding of the learning goals. Some questions you can pose in class to check that are:

  1. What are you learning?
  2. Why are you learning This?
  3. What activities/work are you doing to help you learn This?
  4. How will you know when you have learned This?
