Centenary State High School teaching and learning framework
At Centenary SHS we utilise Marzano’s et al (2011) Art and Science of Teaching (ASOT) as our pedagogical framework. It provides us with an evidence base for the selection of high yield teaching and learning strategies; but more importantly, it gives us a common language with which to engage in whole school dialogue. Our pedagogical framework is implemented in every classroom, every day, through the Centenary Agreed Practices (CAPS). While these practices ensure that there is a degree of consistency in the way learning and teaching is undertaken at Centenary SHS, innovation and teacher autonomy is encouraged, especially in relation to the selection of strategies that enhance declarative or procedural knowledge or connect learners with the curriculum, their peers and their teachers.
