    If you need to know more about the CESA Crossways RE curriculum then this workshop is for you!

    This workshop consists of viewing and responding to three online modules. The three presentation modules will be uploaded in video format and accessible via MS Forms.  There will also be a MSTeams discussion with dates to be announced.  All modules must be completed and submitted by 16th April 2021.  All information regarding the modules will be sent to registrants after the 22nd of February.

    This is designed for teachers new to teaching RE in 2021 or 2020, particularly those who either:

    • didn't undertake the full UniSA Catholic Studies Strand in their B.Ed
    • or those without completed Graduate Certificate in Catholic Education.

    The workshop goes beyond the mandated CESA Teacher Induction Module to explore the privilege of teaching Religious Education in a Catholic school, and will highlight your responsibilities, resources and practical considerations. We will look at the development of particular skills and dispositions in RE and how 'Enduring Understandings' are acquired alongside capabilities in questioning, interpreting, making meaning and dialoguing in Religious Education.

    This module will focus on:

    • the purpose of the learning area of Religious Education
    • the structure and features of CESA's redesigned Crossways RE curriculum
    • contemporary pedagogies for RE
    • learning design principles for RE
    • the educational philosophy and theology which has shaped the redesign of Crossways
    • and also concept-based teaching, the features of high-quality teaching and learning in RE and how Visible Thinking strategies and routines can be applied to the RE classroom.

      Intended For
      Teachers of EALD learners in Years Reception to Years 1-2.
      The main focus will be on oral language and early/emergent writing

      Rationale

      The Learning English: Achievement and Proficiency (LEAP) Levels  is the tool used by teachers of EALD learners to formatively assess the Standard Australian English (SAE) proficiency of EALD students.  It is aligned with the Australian Curriculum Literacy progressions and is used to assess oral and written language from all curriculum areas. 

      Also, all schools that intend submitting EALD data for CESA funding allocations need to ensure that teachers who conduct EALD assessments have participated in relevant professional learning during 2021 about how to use the LEAP Levels

      1 day workshop focus

      • Preparatory work for the first session will communicated to participants prior to Day 1
      • Build knowledge about the language/grammar of the LEAP Levels 1-6 language [oral and early writing]

      Apply this knowledge through guided, collaborative and independent use of the LEAP Levels to assess samples of language and identify learning goals

      AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers Include

      Standard 5: Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning
      Standard 6: Engage in professional learning

            Early Career Teachers Spiritual and Religious Formation

            The Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation Team is excited to offer schools the opportunity to be part of a trial program aimed at providing a formation experience for teachers early in their careers in Catholic Education. Your nomination of a participant is welcome as outlined below.

            We acknowledge the valuable work that you and your schools do in inducting, mentoring and developing passionate teachers and recognise the opportunities and challenges experienced in this space. This offering aims to support this through the provision of targeted and specialised spiritual and religious formation for early career teachers.

            Through this residential trial program we aim to support and companion teachers early in their career in Catholic Education (less than 5 years in the sector) who are employed in a Catholic school in 2021.

            This Spiritual and Religious Formation trial will provide an opportunity to: 

            • Provide enhanced spiritual and religious formation as part of their induction into Catholic Education South Australia
            • Provide pastoral, spiritual and mentoring support for new teachers to the sector
            • Companion participants to support their ongoing formation
            • Inspire personal faith and prayer life of educators
            • Deepen teachers’ experience and understandings in order to support their key role as educators and witnesses within the Catholic school environment
            • Collect data to map longitudinal impact of formation programs on teacher satisfaction and commitment in supporting the mission and vision of their schools and Catholic Education South Australia
            • Develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the vision and values of Catholic Education South Australia.

            Where: The Monastery, 15 Cross Road, Urrbrae SA 5064

            CESA will cover the costs including program materials, accommodation, catering and 1 days TRT.

            Jesus was a gifted teacher, much of his teaching being in the form of parables. These parables have a distinctive form and an appreciation of the original context of the parables is essential to understanding their meaning; they are meant to discomfort or even shock the listener. This workshop will unpack a range of parables, all of which can be linked to the Doctrinal and Content Elaborations in the Knowledge Strand of the redesigned Crossways CurriculumIt will also focus on strategies to help make the parables relevant and meaningful for our students today.
