Hi Jeanette, Sorry I didn't see your post. We start year 9 with the History of the Aussie Church - this is the first time I've taught it and I'm finding it a little dry. The project we'll start soon is based on the 25 of the Best from the RESource website - so I think that'll be a bit more interesting and student centred. Hope your year has started well. Jo

Hi all,

I've just joined the group. I teach at a large Catholic boys school in Geelong, Vic. This year I have years 9 & 10 RE and I co-ordinate the community service in the school. Looking forward to sharing with you. Is there a twitter hashtag used for Catholic teachers in Aus? Cheers

Getting the same technology for students in specialized classrooms as the gen. ed. classrooms

Hello everyone! I have been in Special Education for more than 34 years.I am currently a retiree who has returned to the classroom and am teaching a high school Autism class.

Equity between schools in the same district

An interesting theme came up while I was interviewing a principal friend of mine. She was discussing how she has begun to feel defeated because  of the new requirement our state has that all students will take the state assessments on line. She was saying that this will simply murder their school performance. Her student population is close to being 100% poverty, there is no parental support at all at home, and they only get computer time in school  a couple times a week due to too few…See More
