    Assessment in Religious Education and the Crossways Performance Standards


    The Religious Education Curriculum is the learning area at the heart of every Catholic school. As such, it requires the same rigour in learning and assessment as all other learning areas. In this Mini Module, you will discover:

    • how the Crossways Performance Standards function to support quality assessment in Religious Education; and,
    • how these standards help teachers to determine A-E Grades in the Religious Education classroom.

    Mark's Gospel in a Nutshell

    The Gospel according to Mark is one of the tree 'synoptic' Gospels. This Gospel is short and action packed from beginning to end. It was written to be heard not just read. This Mini Module will explore the features of Mark's carefully crafted Gospel including his ministry of healing and preaching, major themes and the historical context in which he was writing. In Mark's Gospel, Jesus welcomes outcasts, offers forgiveness to sinners and casts out unclean spirits. Jesus uses the genre of parables to help people understand how they can participate in bringing about the Kingdom of God. Kate Ordon 

    Matthew’s Gospel in a Nutshell

    Matthew’s gospel, like the other 3, tells a rich and inspiring story about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Though based on Mark’s gospel, Matthew’s gospel is longer, adapting some of Mark’s text in interesting ways and adding material that is unique among the four gospels. His portrait of Jesus is also unique, along with Peter and the disciples. Matthew’s gospel also contains a wealth of teaching material which no doubt served to inform and encourage his community who were living out their faith in Jesus at the end of the first century in difficult circumstances. As you will discover it is no wonder that this gospel is sometimes referred to as “the Gospel of the Church”.  Kate Ordon

    The World Behind the Text

    Teachers familiar with the Crossways Curriculum will know that the recommended process for unpacking biblical texts with students is the 3 Worlds Strategy. The worlds ‘of the text’ and ‘in front of the text’ usually present no problems, but the world ‘behind the text’ can be more challenging. Importantly it is this ‘world’ that can help us to appreciate the full meaning and significance of the text, sometimes in ways that surprise or shock the 21st century reader.  This mini-module will explore some of the historical, cultural and religious factors that pertain to a range of New Testament texts and will enable us to appreciate them through the lens of Jesus’ original audience and the gospel writers’ communities.  Kate Ordon

    Extraordinary New Testament Women

    Whilst most people can recall the stories of many New Testament men – the disciples, John the Baptist, Zacchaeus and Bartimaeus to name a few - the stories of women are less well known. This mini-module focuses on the lives and accomplishments of a range of extraordinary women during Jesus’ ministry and in the early Church. Their unwavering faith in Jesus, and courageous commitment to his teachings, continue to inspire his followers, both men and women, today.  Kate Ordon
     A collaboration between ACRATH, Crossways and SACE 'Spiritualities, Religion and Meaning' This is an opportunity to hear more about ACRATH, look at their Teaching Kits Resources, make connections with how this topic can be integrated in the SACE Stage 1 and 2 Spiritualities, Religion and Meaning course and make clear links with the Crossways Curriculum allowing students to develop skills, dispositions and Enduring Understandings that are informed and inspired by the Catholic Tradition.
     Deb Lubatti
    Overview of MITIOG principles  This module is a general introduction or refresher course to the Made In The Image Of God (MITIOG), Human Sexuality Curriculum. It is a mini- module and does not replace the mandatory 6-hour training course.

    It explores why a formal Human Sexuality Curriculum is necessary for today’s context, explores the protocols and the foundational principles underpinning the teaching of this curriculum in SA Catholic schools.

    Let's Talk About Prayer

    This Mini Module has been designed specifically for teachers who are new to teaching in Catholic schools, but it contains a lot of tips and resources that will be useful and relevant for all teachers in Catholic schools. In this Mini Module you will: learn about the different prayer forms in the Catholic Tradition, develop an understanding of what prayer is ( and what it isn’t!), explore different prayer strategies and investigate a variety of prayer resources.

     Sue Coghlan and Helen McKeough
     Crying Out!  As Catholic communities we know that we have a responsibility to care for our earth and for each other. In this mini module we will explore the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference Social Justice Statement 2021-2022 Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor. There will be a focus on what Scripture can teach us and what we can learn from the Wisdom of First Nations people as we continue the conversation and discern our response.

    Luke's Gospel in a Nutshell

    Of the four gospels, for many people Luke’s is the most loved. This year the gospel readings at Mass focus on Luke’s account of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. This course will provide an opportunity to engage with Luke’s account, to travel with Jesus from his birth to his final journey to Jerusalem and to ponder the significance of this gospel for ourselves and for our students.

    The course will briefly address the background to Luke’s gospel, articulate some of Luke’s concerns and major themes – and will break open a range of Lukan texts using the ‘three worlds’ strategy.

     Kate Ordon
    Unpacking Parables Jesus was a master story-teller – and parables form the bulk of his teaching ministry. They are a distinctive literary genre - one feature being their ability to unsettle us - to challenge us to new ways of thinking and acting. This course will focus on a range of Jesus’ parables which address different concerns e.g. the nature of the Kingdom, justice, mercy and the ‘lost’.  The ‘three worlds’ strategy will be used to unpack the stories – i.e. the ‘world of the text’ and the ‘world behind the text’.  In particular, participants will be encouraged to engage with the ‘world in front of the text’ in order to make links with the hopes and dreams of students today. Kate Ordon 
    ​​​​​​​Mighty Miracles

    Each of the four gospels portray Jesus as mighty in word and deed. Sometimes his mighty deeds are called ‘deeds of wonder’, ‘deeds of power’ or ‘signs’. They are extraordinary events bearing religious significance - and invite us to faith.

    This course will examine a range of miracles – their distinctive literary form and what they teach. It will also address the background of the stories - what was happening in the time of Jesus and what was happening in the gospel writers’ communities many years later. Where appropriate the ‘three worlds’ strategy will be used to unpack the texts.

     Kate Ordon
    Dialogue is more than just a chat

    Participants will explore Catholic dialogue pedagogy and the opportunities in the classroom.  This will be grounded by relevant system documents, the Wisdom Strand of the Crossways curriculum, and a reading by Pope Francis. This mini module will look at pedagogical approaches that consider authentic dialogue, the richness of diversity, creating a culture of trust and how we navigate this to ensure the dignity of all.

     Christina Jonas
    A Deeper Dive into the Wisdom Strand

    In this mini module you will have the opportunity to engage with the Wisdom Strand and understand its implications for curriculum design and pedagogy while exploring the cultivation of dispositions and how to create a climate for enhancing engagement, reflective practice and self-exploration.

    This will focus on going deeper in understanding the 'why' , the 'what' and the 'how' of the 'Wisdom' strand.  A deeper dive into the Wisdom Strand will also explore the relationship between the CESA Key Capabilities and the Wisdom strand.

    Christian Meditation - A guide to implementing this prayer and wellbeing practice into your classroom

    In this mini module, you will be given an introduction to the “3 S” approach to Christina Meditation – Silence, Stillness & Simplicity.

    We will explore what preparations can set teachers & students up for success in implementing this prayer form as a regular practice in the school day/week.

    We will also discuss FAQ’s and trouble-shooting hints sourced from 50 schools that engaged with the CESA Christian Meditation Inquiry which ran from 2015 - 2018.

          Description

          Do you want to grow your Languages program and have healthy senior enrolments?

          This program is aimed at secondary language teachers who want to inspire, engage and retain senior students, creating lifelong second language learners and users.

          The study of second language becomes an elective in most CESA Schools from year 9 and this transition to senior secondary typically sees a significant drop in Languages enrolments. Silvana Bianchet (previous Italian teacher at Saint Aloysius College) continued to maintain good numbers of senior students and outstanding SACE achievement. Her involvement in the CCQ project and case study ‘Using student feedback about the learning environment as a starting point for co-construction,' fuelled Silvana’s desire to develop and contextualise her own strategies and techniques to boost student engagement and retention. The workshops will explore essential elements and strategies that teachers can incorporate into their own practice and classrooms, as well as the opportunity to hear from Silvana’s past students and their personal experiences and perspectives.

          The topics will revolve around visible student growth and empowerment, engagement and motivation strategies, building capacity, mastery of L1 through L2, data collection, and exploring relevant, limitless themes and concepts whilst having fun.

          Teachers will be encouraged to collect pre and post workshop student surveys and keep a professional practice journal as evidence to discuss and share ideas at online meetings.

          Online meeting times and plan will be sent via email to registered participants.

          Attendance at 2 full day workshops and 2 online meetings (dates TBA) is required, to participate in this professional learning series. Registering for this event signifies your commitment to attend all sessions.

            AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers Include

            Standard 1: Know your students and how they learn

            Standard 2: Know the content and how to teach it

            2024 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

            Gavin Grift will facilitate this eight-day course in which Principals, Deputy Principals, APRIMs, system coaches and school-based leaders of learning will practise and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

            Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhance cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for participants who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue.

            Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

            My experience in cognitive coaching has been enriching, equipping me with great tools, models, and a refined coaching style. The emphasis on deep learning and the opportunity for reflection have been pivotal in enhancing my ability to support others on their journey of self-discovery and growth.

            Description

            Resume writing is an art and a science.

            Traditional formats of resumes found in Resume Builders or online examples of resume writing, do not provide secondary school students with a good way of highlighting their skills and capabilities, especially if they are trying to find their first job.

            The purpose of a resume is to get to the next stage - a job interview. Some resumes are better at doing this than others – so what are the secrets for school students? What type of resume is more likely to get them to the interview stage?

            Join this live workshop to develop greater insight as to how you as a Teacher, Career Advisor, VET Coordinator, Industry Engagement Officer or Work Experience Coordinator, can support secondary school students to write their own resume.

            This online workshop has many practical tips for educators, to:

            • demystify the purpose and structure of resumes,
            • develop ways of modelling good resume writing, in a time effective manner,
            • understand the rationale behind Career Objective statements on resumes,
            • plan resume writing sessions for students and
            • teach students to adapt online resume formats, like those on Canva, to strengthen their chances of getting to the interview stage.

              Assessment in SRM

              Teachers of Stage 1 and 2 SACE Spiritualities, Religion and Meaning are invited to attend these workshops to help with building capacity and confidence when assessing in SRM.

              The day will be presented in two parts and so participants should elect to attend one or both parts of the day, as best supports their school’s present needs in facilitating this subject.


              Date: Tuesday 2 July 2024

              Venue: Catholic Education Office, George Street, Thebarton

              PART 1

              9.15am - 12.45pm

              What am I looking for?  

              This session is useful for those endeavouring to gain confidence in applying the SRM Performance Standards. In this session, we will take a closer look at the SRM Performance Standards and experience the power of professional conversations when locating evidence of them in student samples.  

              (Please note: participants require a fully charged laptop)

              A light morning tea will be provided


              PART 2

              1.45pm - 4pm

              How can I align my assessment design to the Performance Standards? 

              This session is useful for those wishing to develop or enhance their SRM assessments tasks. We will consider each assessment type (and their aligned assessment design criteria) to consider what could be “evidence of learning” when designing our own assessments. It could be beneficial to attend this session with a co-worker to enable collaboration on your school’s SRM assessment designs.

              (Please note: participants should bring samples of current planning or future ideas for assessment pieces to develop on this day, and a fully charged laptop)


              System Accredited Module approved for teachers attending the whole day. Further information to be provided on the day.

              Testimonials from teachers who completed this workshop in 2023:

              “It was so valuable to go to a PL where I’ve left with a unit plan.”

              “I believe that all RE teachers would benefit from attending, whether they are new graduates or have had decades of experience.”

              “The information and knowledge shared can easily be applied into other learning areas, not just in RE. This information is something I will definitely keep in mind as I plan for ACARA V9.”

              “All (RE leadership) staff from our school are all on the same page now.” 

              “Engaging in the “Build a Crossways Learning Design” helped me move from surface learning to deep learning about the Crossways curriculum and assessment.”

              “Having a day out of school to develop my contemporary learning design for my class supported me to be able to have enough time to build most of the unit and ask for clarification with knowledgeable others.”

              “A positive outcome for me is that it has deepened my knowledge and skills with assessment and unit plans, but I also feel excited about teaching this unit, planning another and excited to be working together as a team at school.”

              In 2022/23, 89 CESA teachers completed the ACER's PAT Data Driven Decisions program, that was coordinated through the Catholic Education Office.

              In 2024, CESA will again be providing sponsorship for the following staff, to complete this ACER accredited professional learning program:

              • Leaders of Learning (or similar), and
              • Staff participating in the Aspiring Leaders Program.

              Professional learning will be held in Term 3, 2024.

              All resources and lessons will be available online, with most of the learning being completed in a self-paced format.  There are two to three online sessions, with recordings made available, and attendance is not mandatory.

              Staff members who are not in a Leader of Learning, or similar position, may still participate in the professional learning, provided costs are covered by your school. Cost without sponsorship will be at a reduced rate of approximately $440. Schools are encouraged to send more than one staff member.
