Animal protection charity, Voiceless, has launched a series of free new resources that are designed to assist teachers of Years 7 and 9 who are preparing for NAPLAN.
Navigating NAPLAN is a free, three-week English Teaching and Learning Program, which is accompanied by classroom PowerPoint presentations, narrative and persuasive writing prompts and worksheets.
Aligned with the Australian Curriculum (Years 7 and 9), the program was developed and reviewed by a team of educators including senior Australian English teachers.
Voiceless, which provides free Animal Protection Education (APE) resources for high-school educators, revealed its excitement at launching the new Navigating NAPLAN program.
“We are excited to introduce high school students to a wide range of animal issues and concepts by encouraging research, discussion and debate – key learning aspects that directly relate to NAPLAN,” said Ondine Sherman, co-founder and managing director of Voiceless. “The ‘Navigating NAPLAN’ resource suite provides teachers with the tools they need to guide students through the art of narrative and persuasive writing.”
Teaching resources that cover the issues of Broiler Chicken Welfare, Legal Personhood and Dolphins in Captivity are also available for download.
According to Voiceless, the Navigating NAPLAN materials are intended to provide additional practice and resources for those undertaking NAPLAN testing. However, these materials have not been created nor officially endorsed by ACARA.
