Class Plans and Curriculum Material

Teaching Auslan as a LOTE (Language Other Than English)?
You are not alone. In Victoria alone over almost 100 schools teach Auslan as their LOTE. Unfortunately the LOTE curriculum and support material has bee left to the individual school/teacher, which has created unnecessary confusion and burden on the individuals responsible for creating the curriculum and classroom materials. Throughout 2006 we discussed the needs and expectations for Auslan as a LOTE with teachers across the country and have produced a comprehensive curriculum, with all necessary classroom support material and teaching tips, for Australian educators.

We have divided the curriculum into the following areas. Each area includes a full curriculum, class plans and support material for the classroom and students.
