Inspiring stories

These stories – from the clusters, from educators, Aboriginal students, leaders and parents – tell their journeys, their challenges, their successes and will other inspire educators. They will help you think about your own experiences in the classroom, school and community and inform your teaching.

Highly scaffolded teaching

“The role of teachers is to understand and find out what the students in their class already know, and then take them from the familiar to the unfamiliar, from commonsense to the new ways of thinking.”

Learning through collaboration

“I have realised that I need to make sure that all instructions are clear to all my students, especially
David. I ask the students to relate the problem back to me in language that they understand.”
