CTJ – 2018 Scripture
This year the focus for our Consistency of Teacher Judgement discussions will be the Achievement Standards regarding to the teaching and learning of Scripture.
Consistency of Teacher Judgement process for 2018
From our consultations with staff and APREs in 2017 the following changes have been made to how CTJ – Religion will be organized in 2018.
Schools are encouraged to engage in all CTJ practices. These include:
- familiarity with and shared understanding of Religion curriculum
- common interpretation of the curriculum intent and shared understanding of how learner achievement is demonstrated
- collaborative planning of and reflection on teaching, learning and assessing techniques
- ongoing formal and informal dialogue (within and between schools) about the teaching and learning cycle
- moderation of teacher judgments within and between school/s.
Teachers in P-Yr.6 will be required to attend two regional meetings – one in Term one 2018 and the other in Term three 2018.
The CTJ pre -planning sessions early in 2018, will engage P-yr 10 teachers in the first three CTJ practices.
Yr 7 – yr 10 teachers will participate in pre-planning sessions at their normal scheduled Religion department meetings early in the year.
Ongoing formal and informal dialogue will be the responsibility of APREs/HODs and teachers during the school year.
Teachers will discuss their own samples at the interschool CTJ – Religion meetings.
The CTJ process will develop:
- Teachers understanding of what the student needed to know/do to demonstrate the relevant achievement standard as well as appropriate and valid assessment tasks.
The CTJ – Religion focus for 2018 will be the teaching and assessing of Scripture
