  2. Differentiated Activities and Assessments Across the Australian Curriculum

    A significant advantage of working with the Australian Curriculum is the ability to modify existing content descriptions for broader curriculum application. Because they lend themselves so readily to differentiation, Australian Curriculum content descriptions can lead beyond lower-level test-prep answers to higher-level thinking and mastery of 21st century skills. Carolyn Coil's practical examples show educators how to use differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment to promote individual student achievement. Within this framework, this book addresses over 50 topics in the Australian Curriculum learning areas of English, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science.
