Active Learning Team programs
Our Active Learning Team works within the classroom environment and with teachers every day. They are a part of our Collaborative Professional Release time each week as they are integral members of the teaching teams. They assist teachers with adjustments and resources to support the extension and enrichment of classroom programming.
Additionally, the ALT organise a range of programs:
- Mount Coo-tha Young Writers – held at a cluster school annually (selection process)
- ICAS assessments – Maths / Science / English (Reading and Writing) and Digital Technologies.
Mt Coot-Tha Young Writers
This program was developed in response to the perceived need to promote quality creative written expression in the English curriculum, thus extending and challenging talented young writers. A consultant, acknowledged in his/her field of expertise, will act as the catalyst for the young writers to individually create, make and present a major piece of writing. While the workshop design team recognises that the emphasis of this event is on written communication, the young writers will further develop intellectual, social and personal awareness.
