CPD: Syllabus Strategies: Focus on Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate (Palmerston North and online)

A one-day practical course in which participating teachers will gain an understanding of how to teach the Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate syllabi.

Aims

The Syllabus Strategies Course is designed to:

  • Offer a chance to improve understanding of specific areas within the new syllabus, particularly in regards to technical, musical and performance aspects of the work, as identified by examiners during examinations.
  • Reflect on the relevance and interpretation of the assessment criteria in selected exercises and dances
  • Provide a platform to discuss, explore and develop strategies to strengthen areas of the new work
  • Support the creation of development exercises for Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate students by defining the requisite skills and knowledge to do so.
  • Attendees at the course will be better able to understand the ‘how’ of teaching the syllabus, increase knowledge of the assessment criteria and gain insight into how the candidates are generally coping in the examinations.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate, physically and/or through explanation, an understanding of the technique/s at each level
