Homework is a valuable part of teaching and learning at the Secondary College of Languages. It allows students to practice, consolidate and extend upon work completed in the classroom. The nature, frequency, and volume of homework set will be determined by the classroom teacher.

Students and parents/caregivers will be advised of homework expectations at the beginning of the year. Failure by students to complete homework on a regular basis will be followed up with parents/caregivers.

Years 11 to 12 Scope and Sequence

A scope and sequence is a summary of what is to be taught, the sequence in which it will be taught and the syllabus outcomes that may be addressed in the intended learning.

Elements of a scope and sequence for secondary schools include:

  • title of each unit
  • sequence of each unit for the year/stage
  • duration of each unit
  • syllabus outcomes included in each unit (these are commonly represented by outcomes codes).
