THE AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM (ACARA)

We use the ACARA curriculum framework with intention to create workshops and programs for educators and students. We explore and find new pathways of approach to learning areas and content descriptors whilst engaging in arts based strategies. Our work encompasses and specialises in literacy and numeracy, general capabilities and Teaching for Effective Learning (TfEL).
