Unpacking the Victorian Curriculum F–10 Languages curriculum Levels 7–10 in the 7–10 sequence Theme: Celebrations Overview This resource contains ideas to help teachers unpack content descriptions and achievement standards from Levels 7–10 in the 7–10 sequence of the Victorian Curriculum F–10 Languages curriculum, using the theme of Celebrations as an example. Each table in this resource shows how selected sections of the relevant achievement standard can be aligned to selected content descriptions and selected sub-strands from each strand of a Victorian Curriculum F–10 Language curriculum, and then matched to teaching and learning activities related to a selected theme. In this resource, the example Language curriculum is Modern Greek and the theme is Celebrations, and more specifically Greek Easter. Teachers of any Language can adapt this example and develop a unit of work tailored to a celebration specific to their chosen language and culture. They can identify the content descriptions that are relevant to exploring this theme in a Language lesson and develop appropriate activities for a teaching and learning program. This resource could be adapted to celebrations such as Advent, cherry blossom season, New Year, Hanukkah, Tet, Eid, Diwali, Christmas, Bastille Day and Carnevale. This resource shows how a single theme can be developed to support learning at different levels across Levels –10 in the 7–10 sequence. There is a separate table for each band of levels – one for Levels 7 and 8 and one for Levels 9 and 10. Content descriptions that are well suited to the selected theme have been identified from each of the strands and sub-strands, and examples of activities and resources that cover these content descriptions have been provided. Throughout the resource, each content description is hyperlinked to its elaborations in the Languages, Modern Greek pages on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website. Elaborations are non-mandated suggestions for activities related to each content description; reviewing these elaborations may assist in further unpacking elements of the content description and may provide further ideas for this or other themes. This resource highlights just one way in which teachers may choose to plan activities or units of work that are aligned with the Victorian Curriculum F–10 Languages curriculum, and the activities in this resource are just examples. Teachers can use this resource to assist them in adapting other combinations of content descriptions to develop their own units of work focused on this and other themes. For more information about the Languages curriculum, including rationale, aims and key terminology, plus information about adapting this example to other Languages, next steps and resources, see the final pages in this resource. The VCAA F–10 Unit has produced two short videos to help teachers unpack the Victorian Curriculum F–10 Languages: Introducing the Victorian Curriculum: Languages F–6 and Introducing the Victorian Curriculum: Languages 7–10. The VCAA recommends that teachers watch these videos prior to starting the planning process for any unit of work. © VCAA 1 Unpacking the Victorian Curriculum F–10 – Languages, Levels 7–10 in the F–10 sequence © VCAA Page 2 Unpacking the Victorian Curriculum F–10 – Languages, Levels 7–10 in the F–10 sequence Celebrations Levels 7 and 8 in the 7–10 sequence Students explore the significance of certain traditions and practices associated with the language they are studying. In this example, Modern Greek is used to explore the traditions, cultural practices and language associated with Easter celebrations in Greece, Cyprus and Australia. At Levels 7 and 8, students become familiar with the sounds and alphabet of Modern Greek. They apply elements of Modern Greek grammar to the production of simple and increasingly original texts, using modelled and rehearsed language in familiar and unfamiliar contexts. They make connections between texts and cultural contexts to make cross-curricular connections and explore intercultural perspectives and experiences through interaction with speakers of Greek. Note: The example activities below are based on selected content descriptions, sub-strands, strands and sections of the achievement standard; they do not cover the full Languages curriculum for Levels 7 and 8. Teachers can adapt these ideas to develop teaching and learning activities that help students explore other celebrations in other cultures, u
