Topic 3: Pedagogical initiatives

Posted by arlekeno on June 8, 2009

I am thinking about RBL compared to “Quality Teaching’ I think they are very similar and have already blogged that.

I do like the statement in https://www.det.nsw.edu.au/inform/yr2002/mar/pedagogy.htm though, that what “quality teachng” means is not that new. It is just Good teaching.

Its all just about being reminded what good teaching is, and giving us permission and encouragement to do it. 50 years ago if History was studying England and Music was learning about English composers and English was reading an English novelist of the same period of the above two, it would have been called good teaching. Now days at my school ( for example) we teach Japanese, study Japanese history, do japanese caligraphy in art etc. It is all the same thing, inter connectedness.

And as for using the resources you have at hand, that is just common sense, we just have a much more varied suite of resources.

  • What is an appropriate role for the teacher librarian in curriculum development?
  • Not really sure, it would be good  to be on the curriculum committee, but i think the best I could hope for at my school would be to let teachers know what resources we have relevant to them, find out what resources they need, and let them know I am available.

  • What benefits can a school obtain from the active involvement of the teacher librarian in curriculum development?
  • Should a principal expect that teachers would plan units of work with the teacher librarian?
  • How are students disadvantaged in schools that exclude the teacher librarian from curriculum development?
