What’s new for G-TEN in 2012? We have a number of new categories: Leadership Development – this year Leadership Development professional learning opportunities are being offered through G-TEN, and can be viewed in a NEW Leadership Development category. Many of the programs will be decided by a working party of current school teachers and leaders who meet regularly. This group formerly developed and promoted programs for the Assistant Principals and Aspiring Leaders’ group. Graduate and Returning Teachers - A range of programs specifically designed for graduate and returning teachers can be viewed through the category on the left of the screen. Personal Development – This category will include all sessions to do with your development – eg: First Aid, G-TEN Design Space on Ultranet: This year all resources for professional learning programs will be accessed by DEECD employees though our new Design Space on the Ultranet. (Search for number 52280047). Have a browse around the site for information and G-TEN news. In designing the suite of programs offered, ideas are gained from G-TEN participant responses and also from the Networks in the Grampians Region to ensure the identified professional learning needs are addressed.

Secondary students need to undertake writing tasks at increasing degrees of abstraction, and develop strategies for writing of the quality, diversity and structure teachers and examinations require. This series of two workshops will utilise the DEECD Key Characteristics of Effective Literacy and its Writing focus across VELS Domains, making links with international research. We will investigate teaching strategies that work to improve student writing across the curriculum, explore what teachers expect of secondary student writers, identify characteristics of effective student writers and address setting Writing learning intentions alongside content area learning intentions. We will develop writing scaffolds for students in a range of writing genres and for a range of writing purposes. Participants will leave the workshops with strategies that can be used by teachers in any subject to improve the writing self-efficacy of their students.

It will attempt to answer the following questions: What makes a good debating topic? What are the differing role of the three speakers? What is and how important is a team line and the team split? What makes a good rebuttal? The importance of " Matter", "Manner" and "Method" ? What is the adjudicator looking for? What debating competitions are available for schools? What does the Royal South Street Society offer student debaters? Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions and thoughts to the session to share with the panel and fellow teachers.
