Caitlin Maher's curator insight, October 8, 2013 5:52 AM

This is a great electronic resource that could most easily be implimented into the classroom teachings of the alphabet. This resource would be displayed on an ipad for individual students or even for the whole class on an interactive white board. The 21st century learning focusses on this electronic interactive based learning. I especially like that the accent is Australian.

Syllabus bites: Active and passive voice - Overview

Knowledge and understanding about using active and passive voice will enhance effective writing.

In the active voice, the subject (or agent) is placed before the verb. The emphasis is on the subject who is doing the action.

In the passive voice, the object of an action is placed before the verb. The emphasis is on what is being done to the object of the sentence.

Nowadays people are juggling a variety of media platforms including tablets, mobile phones, laptops and consuming, connecting, collaborating and creating content as never before. The internet has enabled the role and relationship between author and audience to become blurred (Jenkins 2006) leading to a new form of narrative that is native to the Internet (Rose, 2012).

Board of Studies News

Board of Studies News | NSW English K-10 syllabus | Scoop.it

An excellent resource, Suggested texts for the English K–10 Syllabus, is now available on the Board’s website.

Suggested texts for the English K–10 Syllabus is a compilation of quality reading and viewing for students in Kindergarten to Year 10. It combines the classics and successful teaching texts with innovative recent works. It includes fiction as well as nonfiction, poetry, drama, film, media and multimedia texts.

The listed texts are suitable for Kindergarten to Year 10 but are not prescribed for study, allowing schools to select the most appropriate material for their students. These lists include texts that teachers can use to implement the new syllabus. Text requirements for K–6 and 7–10 classrooms are found in Content and Text Requirements in the English K–10 Syllabus. To assist teachers, texts are mapped against the syllabus text requirements.
