Each Refresh.ED unit contains a Links to Curriculum page. This page defines which Western Australian and Australian Curriculum learning areas the unit links to and outlines which specific strands, sub-strands and content descriptions are met through delivery of the unit.
General capabilities table
The Australian Curriculum describes seven general capabilities which extend across each learning area. General capabilities addressed in each Refresh.ED learning task are highlighted by shading in a table for each unit.
Each Refresh.ED learning task incorporates at least three general capabilities defined by the Australian Curriculum.
Curriculum Connections using Refresh.ED
ACARA has produced a resource called ‘Curriculum Connections’ that identifies connections across learning areas, general capabilities and cross curriculum priorities of the F-10 Australian Curriculum for several cross-cutting topics, including food and fibre and food and wellbeing.
Refresh.ED offers teaching units already designed to address Curriculum Connections. Most units link directly with Health and Physical Education or Technologies, but can be linked to one or more other learning areas. A table ‘Additional Links to the Australian Curriculum’ has been provided within each unit to show how it links to these additional learning areas.
We are working on summaries for all years for each prominent learning area. Check out the summaries for K – Yr6 Health and Physical Education and Design and Technologies Yr7 – Yr10 for a taste of things to come.
