Secondary Support Program on Literacy Skills and Personal Stories

(0)
This program was designed using the Australian Curriculum Life Skills Outcomes and is designed to cater for the highly personalised needs of students in a Secondary Support Class. This unit is divided into four parts and is closely linked to the Literacy Progressions. Students will be assessed on their abilities and areas for progress in the skills of Sight Words, Phonological Awareness, Phonics, Reading Accuracy and Fluency. The results from a combination of diagnostic assessments will allow students to be placed on the Literacy Progressions in the three areas of Phonological Awareness, Phonics and Reading. Student achievement and progress will be on display in the classroom via a Bump It Up wall in the area of Reading. This is to encourage students throughout their completion of the MultiLit Reinforced Reading Program. Students will also be completing a highly personalised Sight Words program followed by a Phonemic- based Spelling Program. These three skill-based areas will continue throughout the first semester of the school year. Finally, as a reading and writing component, students will complete a series of reading and writing tasks based on the genre of Personal Narratives. These will be modelled with an emphasis on planning, proof-reading and editing published work. Students will: • Complete a series of Literacy assessments which will benchmark their ability and areas for progress • Participate in a 1:1 Sight Words program with accompanying spelling and reinforcement activities • Learn vital phonemic spelling rules and strategies as they complete the Sound Wave Phonemic Spelling Program whilst working at their personalised level • Complete MultiLit’s 1:1 Reinforced Reading Program twice per week and have their progress assessed and charted fortnightly • Learn the purpose, audience and form used in Personal Narratives • Appreciate the significance of planning, proof-reading and publishing pieces of written work. *** This is only the program***

What is Wellness? A Semester long program on looking after yourself and others.

(0)
This program was designed for a Secondary Support Unit class and uses outcomes from the Australian Curriculum in English and PDHPE. It was created for my weekly Social Skills lessons and investigate what students know about healthy and unhealthy relationships. This is done by examining various forms of behaviours and communication; both inside and outside the school. Students will also explore their highly personalised triggers and how their response to conflict affects how they and others feel. They will learn techniques in identifying if they are feeling overwhelmed or develop strategies such as distancing themselves from stressors or asking for help from an appropriate adult. Resources, data and content have been taken from current evidence-based research in relation to adolescent mental health (e.g. R U OK?) and campaigns that have been released from Australian and U.K. Education Departments in addressing young peoples’ wellbeing. The sources and material used range from KS1-KS4 so that they are age-appropriate for both Primary and Secondary students in a Support Setting.

Class or Small Group Behaviour Strategies and Triggers Worksheet

(0)
This is a simple yet highly effective worksheet in which students who experience challenging behaviours, sit down together (with teacher and SLSO/ Aide support) to share their ‘triggers’. These are noted on the sheet and the group discussed possible strategies for each student. This task encourages empathy and teamwork as the students work to identify their own barriers to their learning and/or communication with others, whilst thinking about their peers and what supports they may need when they are struggling. These sheets (best done in A3) can be displayed in the classroom so as to reinforce the significance and effectiveness of this task.
