Sharpe, Tina; Thompson, Julie
This package of training materials is intended for use in a professional development program for teachers of two courses in New South Wales: Human Society and the Environment and Technological and Applied Studies. The package consists of nine booklets and a course outline for each course. The first module contains the following: introduction to the package; 44-item bibliography; and report summarizing the project during which 3 organizations concerned with Catholic education in New South Wales (Australia) developed the program to help teachers understand the language demands of their classrooms and learn a metalanguage for discussing those language demands with their students. The modules, which may be presented in an eight-module course or eight workshops, cover the following topics: the teaching/learning cycle; a functional view of language; language used for describing; language used for recounting; language used for instructing; language used for explaining; and language used for challenging. Included in the course outline are the transparency masters and handouts for each module of the course and sample units for history, geography, commerce, and design and technology classrooms. Each sample unit contains subject-specific instructions and resources for using language in the ways described in the course modules. (MN)
