    The Catholic Education Office Numeracy Team has developed a resource titled Engaging Young Children in Number and Measurement: Developing Mathematical Understandings, to assist educators teaching mathematics, to understand and engage more deeply with the mathematical thinking of young children.

    The frameworks and analysis of children’s thinking documented in this book are based on research undertaken by teachers in their classroom.

    This book provides a theoretical and reflective component, enabling educators to align their teaching to theories of learning in mathematics and the Australian Curriculum in the early years.

    At the end of each section, a framework for developing mathematical understandings is suggested. The framework will support educators to recognise and map the mathematical thinking of young children. The suggested everyday learning tasks will enable children to further explore their thinking using activities that are engaging and connected to real-life situations.

    This book has been provided to all Catholic schools; however, if you wish to purchase your own copy/copies, please register your interest on this site.

    Cost per book is $40.00 (Including GST).

    Registration Enquiries: adeline.mcloughlin@cesa.catholic.edu.au

    The Early Years Numeracy Observation Assessment book has been developed by the Catholic Education Office Numeracy Team, with the objective to provide early years teachers with ways of identifying students’ knowledge in mathematics as they begin school, and during the early years of schooling. This assessment is based on research carried out by the sector as well as from the work of other researchers in the field. It focuses on how children develop strategies in number – sorting, classifying, counting, calculating and applying number when measuring.

    If you wish to purchase a copy of this book, please register your interest on this site.

    Cost per book is $50.00 (Including GST).

    The Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP) is an early year’s mathematics program based on research evidence and designed to promote structural thinking, focusing student attention on spatial and numerical patterns.

    The project will research two areas of classroom based mathematics teaching and learning:

    1. Teaching and Learning Mathematics Content
    The project will provide professional development for R-2 teachers to implement the Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP) and Pattern and Structure Assessment (PASA) in their classrooms.  PASMAP is an early year’s mathematics program developed in Australia based on research evidence. PASMAP develops children’s awareness of pattern and structure in mathematics and is designed for classroom use, with an organised series of learning sequences and pathways that can be integrated into regular planning and teaching. PASA is the assessment tool developed for PASMAP. It is envisaged that PASMAP and PASA would supplement the existing Australian Curriculum requirements and integrate with other mathematics assessment and planning processes, including the Early Years Numeracy Observation Assessment (EYNOA).

    2. Developing Children’s Dispositions for Intellectual Engagement with Mathematics
    The project will examine teachers’ use of a dispositional framework to enable the identification and fostering of children’s intellectual engagement when learning mathematics.

    Participating schools and R- 2 teachers will undertake professional learning with one of the authors and developers of PASMAP and PASA, Professor Joanne Mulligan, and with the researchers, Dr Virginia Kinnear (Deakin University) and Dr David Moltow (UTAS) and CESA Leading Learning Consultants.

    The project will support participating teachers and schools to:

    • develop their knowledge of  mathematics and pedagogies for teaching mathematics;
    • improve both mathematics and numeracy learning outcomes for students;
    • develop knowledge of ways to identify and support  children’s dispositions to be intellectually engaged with mathematical learning;
    • develop research skills, including data collection and management;
    • support ongoing learning in their school context;
    • foster capabilities consistent with CESA’s Living, Learning, Leading framework

    A leadership development and professional collaborative program to develop deeper understandings of how to connect Catholic Identity, Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation and school culture. In 2019 this will use Henri Nouwen’s book Reaching Out as an inspiration for considering new expressions of staff formation that meet contemporary needs, enhance core priorities of the school and enable effective leadership. Participants will receive a copy of the book.  A key component is liaising with colleagues, sharing good practice and returning to school with the confidence, knowledge and resources to engage your staff community. Previous participants have reflected on the value of this collaboration and professional relationships for making Catholic Identity visible in their schools as well as developing their personal knowledge of theology and scripture. It is encouraged that you participate with colleagues from your school leadership team to maximise its impact on professional practice. There will be four sessions throughout the year.

    A leadership development and professional collaborative program to develop deeper understandings of how to connect Catholic Identity, Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation and school culture. In 2019 this will use Henri Nouwen’s book Reaching Out as an inspiration for considering new expressions of staff formation that meet contemporary needs, enhance core priorities of the school and enable effective leadership. Participants will receive a copy of the book.  A key component is liaising with colleagues, sharing good practice and returning to school with the confidence, knowledge and resources to engage your staff community. Previous participants have reflected on the value of this collaboration and professional relationships for making Catholic Identity visible in their schools as well as developing their personal knowledge of theology and scripture. It is encouraged that you participate with colleagues from your school leadership team to maximise its impact on professional practice. There will be four sessions throughout the year.

    Jesus was a gifted teacher, much of his teaching being in the form of parables. These parables have a distinctive form and an understanding of the original context of the parable is essential to understanding their meaning; they are meant to discomfort or even shock the listener. This workshop will unpack a range of parables, some familiar and some less well known. It will also focus on strategies to help make the parables relevant and meaningful for our students today.

    2019 Teacher Induction Module for Teachers New to Catholic Schools in South Australia

    All teachers new to Catholic schools in South Australia are required to attend an Induction Module (in the past known as Accreditation A) as part of the Accreditation requirements of the SACCS Accreditation Policy 2012 (available at 
    http://online.cesanet.adl.catholic.edu.au/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-7713)

    Note:  registrations to this course will close on Monday 30 September.

    INDUCTION MODULE COMPONENTS

    1: Catholic Schools Identity & Mission explores the nature of Catholic schools and the vocational call for all staff to be witnesses to and support schools' Catholic identity and mission, along with general information about CESA services.

    2: Professional Standards and Responsibilities provides important information about professional expectations, employment and legal obligations, rights, responsibilities and duty of care. Special attention is drawn to the CESA Code of Conduct and to the cross-sectorial document Protective Practices.

     

    3: Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Training. All teachers in SA Catholic schools are required to complete Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Training. This training is required before teachers can teach the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum. (Please note that Responding to Abuse and Neglect is a separate mandatory requirement). 

     

    Teachers choose and register for each of the three Induction Module components are required. 

    e.g. Teacher A, a first year graduate, has not undertaken any of the components and so registers for all three components (Option 1).

    e.g. Teacher B, joining Catholic Education SA from another sector or from teaching interstate, has completed the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum elsewhere and so registers for Components 1 & 2 (Option 2).

    e.g Teacher C, a new graduate employed in the Dicoese of Port Pirie, attended that Diocese' Induction Day (equivalent of Component 1) in Port Pirie in Term 1, and so registers for Components 2 & 3 (Option 3).

      Workshop Information

      The Learning and Technologies Team, in partnership with STEM Fast Track, are delighted to offer 30 fully funded placements for Years 10 & 11 female students from CESA schools, to participate in the 2019 STEM Sista programs.

      Delivered by leading entrepreneurship facilitators STEM Fast Track,  the program is facilitated as a STEM-oriented networking event and professional development course for young people in schools, who wish to increase their chances of starting a successful career in STEM industries. The key purpose of the STEM Sista program, is empowering the emerging generation with knowledge and development to become prepared to take on a STEM-driven future with conviction.

      The key purpose of the STEM Fast Track partnership, is to amplify practices and approaches in animating the educational objectives and priorities of the Living Learning Leading Framework, in order to build the entrepreneurial mindset and student agency of young people, in addition to the engagement of young people, particularly women, in STEM.

      The event will be delivered in metropolitan locations and is designed to empower our young women considering a career in STEM by:

      • Introducing them to a variety of STEM professions – up to 12 STEM Guest Speakers will join the program and share their experiences
      • Introducing them to life skills – how to set and achieve goals, manage their money and understand that their choices and attitudes influence their journey and achievements

      It is envisaged that schools will nominate up to 2 - 3 girls from Years 10 & 11 to participate in their nominated program. It is expected that a teacher would attend the program each day in a supervisory role.

      The nominated School Contact will receive confirmation of participation as soon as possible.

        Session 3:  Assessing impact –
        using data and evidence to assess the impact of strategic initiatives on student learning

        This workshop series on Assessing Impact invites senior leaders to identify and monitor the most effective and practical strategies that underpin continuous improvement in learning outcomes for students in their school.

        • How do we actually measure growth and/or improvement in learning?
        • Are our measures valid and reliable and how do we know?
        • Is there some confusion between causation and correlation?

        Leaders are invited to engage with current assessment practices and processes in their own school context and align these with CESA strategic priorities and their annual school improvement plans and professional learning plans. 

        E-portfolios of evidence are increasingly used to assess student, teacher and leader performance. However, Leaders of Learning need to be able to spend time examining how best to quality assure the data and evidence used to make claims about performance improvement.    

         Attendance is recommended at all three sessions:

        Session 1:  Monday 27 May 2019 3:00pm to 6:00pm

        Session 2:  Monday 9 September 2019 3:00pm to 6:00pm

        Session 3:  Thursday 31 October 2019 3:00pm to 6:00pm
