ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

My Personal Philosophy
The role of HASS in a students learning journey
The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) of Western Australia (WA) defines
Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) as the study of human behaviour and interaction in
social, cultural, environmental, economic and political contexts (School Curriculum and
Standards Authority, 2016b). The WA curriculum has four subjects - Civics and Citizenship,
Economics and Business, Geography and History (School Curriculum and Standards
Authority, 2016b).

SCSA go on to say that by studying Humanities and Social Sciences, students will develop
the ability to question; think critically; make decisions based on evidence; devise proposals
for actions; and communicate effectively (School Curriculum and Standards Authority,
2016b).

The study of HASS subjects will give students a broad understanding of the world both in
historical and current contexts. Students will learn to apply their learning in a context of
globalisation and integration of Australia in the world economies and environment. Some
argue that the study of HASS is vital for the future of the world as students learn about the
issues confronting the world (Gilbert R. & Hoepper B., 2017, p. 29).

How I believe HASS should be approached


The teaching of HASS, as with any subject, should be couched in the framework of Deeper
Learning approaches defined by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation as the mastery
of content that engages students in critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and self-
directed learning (as cited in Adams Becker, Freeman, Giesinger Hall, Cummins, & Yuhnke,
2016, p. 14).

This philosophy has its roots in Social Constructivism, a synthesis of the work of Piaget,
Vygotsky and Dewey (University College Dublin, n.d.). Learners construct their own
knowledge from social and contextual experiences rather than being instructed on a topic by
a teacher in isolation from other learners (Kanselaar, 2002, p. 1). Constructivists argue that
one should allow the learner to define their own learning objectives; that knowledge
emerges from constructive interaction between the teacher and the student or between
collaborating students (Kanselaar, 2002, p. 1).

It is within this teaching philosophy that I believe HASS should be approached, based on
active and engaged learning, utilising Blooms Taxonomy (Churches, 2008), collaboration
between students, inquiry and project based learning and with the teacher as the facilitator
Page | 5
ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

of the learning process not the deliverer of knowledge. This is particularly relevant to todays
society were access to knowledge is as easy as typing something into a Google search. For
our students, we are seeking a deeper understanding of knowledge and how it can be
applied to real world problems and solutions.

SCSA embrace this approach to teaching and learning by stating student skills are divided
into: questioning and researching; analysing; evaluating; and communicating and reflecting
(School Curriculum and Standards Authority, 2016c) showing a clear focus on Deeper
Learning.

This approach should be combined with the need for Direct Instruction where appropriate
such that the student is inculcated with the necessary learning objectives of the curriculum at
the indicated year level. Deeper learning requires scaffolding and, as a teacher, it must be
introduced through a visible learning approach (Hattie, 2012).

How I see myself developing as a HASS teacher


My development as a HASS teacher will be based on relationship with my students and be
framed in the following terms: have and encourage a growth mindset (Dweck, 2016), be a
life-long learner, a facilitator of learning, embracing the use of ICTs, recognising that I must
teach in a global context, teaching up (Tomlinson & Javius, 2012), Know thy Impact by
ensuring visible learning (Hattie, 2012), using a teaching style that is friendly and leads to
improved student self-efficacy and to be a teacher who creates interesting and engaging
lessons that lead to deeper learning in the HASS and cross curriculum subjects.

The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) has defined seven
standards that teachers should aspire to. They are all important but Standard 1 resonates
the most with me - Know students and how they learn (Australian Institute for Teaching and
School Leadership, 2017). Teaching effectively requires good relationship and this means
knowing ones students, who they are, opening up to them and gaining their trust and
respect.

Encompassing these approaches to teaching, I will also be a reflective teacher to ensure


that I am achieving the best possible learning outcomes for students and for myself as a
professional in my field.

ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

Rationale
Program context
My teaching program has been written for a Year 10 mixed gender and ability student
cohort. As my first teaching practice is at Comet Bay College (CBC), Secret Harbour, Ill use
this school as a basis for context.

CBC is located 60 kilometres south of the Perth CBD in the sea-side suburb of Secret
Harbour. The College has an Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA)
value 1016 indicating that students come from mostly medium socio-economic status homes
refer Figure 1. The College has 1715 students with an Indigenous student population of 2
% (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority, 2016). By comparison, the
nearest public high school, Warnbro Community High School, has and ISCEA value of 947.
This comparison indicates that a student at CBC will be more likely to have better learning
outcomes than if that same student went to Warnbro.

ICSEA is a scale which allows for fair and reasonable comparisons among schools with
similar students. The lower the ICSEA value, the lower the level of educational advantage of
students who go to this school. (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority,
2015)

Figure 1 - Comet Bay ICSEA value

Source: (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority, 2016)

From reviewing the schools web-site (Comet Bay College, n.d.) and as it is a relatively new
school, I will assume that CBC is well a equipped school with ample Wi-Fi infrastructure for

Page | 7
ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

internet access, that students have access to mobile devices such as iPads (school supplied
or through Bring Your Own Device BYOD) and that classrooms have interactive white
boards with speakers and projectors. Figure 2 illustrates the schools educational
philosophy. I note that there is a strong focus on community links and interaction.

The College uses the Oxford Big Ideas text books for student resources (Conti et al., 2016).

Engagement with the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline


This program will address the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) Year 10
Syllabus - Economics and Business. This subject is most likely taught in second term as it is
the second subject listed in the SCSA Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) Year 10
Sample Teaching and Learning Outline (STLO) (School Curriculum and Standards Authority,
2016d). There are 7 components to the syllabus:

1. Indicators of economic performance (e.g. economic growth rates, unemployment


trends, inflation rates, human development index, quality of life index, sustainability
indexes) and how Australia's economy is performing (ACHEK050), Weeks 1 2.

Page | 8
ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

2. The links between economic performance and living standards, the variations that
exist within and between economies and the possible causes (e.g. foreign
investment, employment rates and levels of debt) (ACHEK051), Weeks 1 2.
3. The distribution of income and wealth in the economy and the ways in which
governments can redistribute income (e.g. through taxation, social welfare payments)
(ACHEK051), Weeks 3 5.
4. The ways that governments manage the economy to improve economic performance
and living standards (e.g. productivity policy, training and workforce development
policy, migration), and to minimise the effects of externalities (e.g. regulation)
(ACHEK052), Weeks 3 5.
5. Factors that influence major consumer and financial decisions (e.g. price, availability
and cost of finance, marketing of products, age and gender of consumers,
convenience, ethical and environmental considerations) and the short-term and long-
term consequences of these decisions (ACHEK053), Weeks 6 7.
6. The ways businesses organise themselves to improve productivity (e.g. provision of
training, investment in applications of technology, use of just-in-time inventory
systems) (ACHEK054), Weeks 8 9.
7. Ways that businesses respond to improved economic conditions (e.g. increasing
their research and development funding to create innovative products, adjusting
marketing strategies to expand their market share) (ACHEK054), Weeks 8 9.

Source: (School Curriculum and Standards Authority, 2016a)

The codes at the end of each component, e.g. ACHEK054, link to the appropriate section in
the Australian Curriculum (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority,
2017). The STLO also suggests the time frames that should be spent teaching each
component (School Curriculum and Standards Authority, 2016d).

This program will only seek to deliver components 1 3 as it has a scope of 3 weeks. It will
build knowledge and understanding by incorporating the skills of analysing and evaluating.

Explanation of topic and content


Students in Year 9 learn about the topic of Australia and the global economy. Building on
this, in Year 10, students are introduced to the concept of economic performance and living
standards while continuing to further their understanding of the concepts of making choices,
interdependence, specialisation, and allocation and markets through examining
contemporary issues, events and/or case studies delving into the reasons for variations in
the performance of economies (School Curriculum and Standards Authority, 2016a).

Page | 9
ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

This program will address the first 3 topics of the Year 10 Economics and Business Syllabus.

How the topic relates to adolescent development


At the age of 14 turning 15, the adolescent mind is entering the final stage of growth and
maturation. This age sees the maturation of the cerebral cortex and is linked to children
taking risks that an adult may not, due to the slow development of the prefrontal cortex
where executive decisions are made (Duchesne & McMaugh, 2015, p. 43).

However, the developing brain also makes significant advances such as improved memory
skills, improved attention and concentration, social reasoning skills improve leading to
deeper relationships with peers and friends, and empathy and social awareness greatly
improve (Duchesne & McMaugh, 2015, p. 45).

In Year 10, students are better able to understand and learn the concepts being taught.
Their questioning and researching, analysing and evaluation skills take their learning to
deeper levels than in previous years. They are called to evaluate more complex issues and
understand the consequences of actions of business and government.

Assessment of Objectives
The program will utilise a range of assessments including formative and summative, closed
and open assessments. The purpose of assessment is primarily concerned with knowing
how a student is progressing in their learning at a micro level and, at a macro level, the
subject and syllabus objectives. Assessments can take the form of Assessment of Learning,
Assessment for Learning, and Assessment as Learning (Duchesne & McMaugh, 2015, p.
496). This program will incorporate all three assessment types.

Assessments are also used to judge whether students meet the SCSA Achievements
standard for the subject. For this program, the SCSA Achievement standards are:

Students use economic indicators to analyse the economic performance of the Australian
economy. They describe how government policy is used to manage the economy and
improve economic performance and living standards, including the redistribution of income
and wealth. (School Curriculum and Standards Authority, 2016a)

Pedagogy
Of primary importance in assessment is understanding whether a student is learning deeply
or whether there is only a surface level understanding. Hattie refers to this as Visible
Teaching and Learning -

Page | 10
ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

Visible teaching and learning occurs when learning is the explicit and transparent goal,
when it is appropriately challenging, and when the teacher and the student both (in their
various ways) seek to ascertain whether and to what degree, the challenging goal is
attained. When students become their own teachers, they exhibit the self-regulatory
attributes that seem most desirable for learners (self-monitoring, self-evaluation, self-
assessment, self-teaching). (Hattie, n.d., p. 21)

My approach to teaching in this program will use a scaffolded approach to learning where
the students gradually build their higher-order questioning and thinking skills. The series of
12 lessons will culminate in a Class Debate designed to embed the concepts and use a full
range of metacognitive skills.

Links to the General Capabilities and Assessment Outline - literacy and


numeracy
The program incorporates many links to the SCASA Curriculum, General Capabilities, Skills
and Cross Curriculum Priorities. Where relevant, these are indicated in the second column of
the program. Refer to the Assessment Table under Assessment Overview for a list of
codes.

The Program
Topic
The subject that is used in the program is Year 10 Economics and Business and is derived
from the SCSA Year 10 Humanities and Social Sciences Curriculum document. The
program will present the first three weeks of this unit
1. Indicators of economic performance (e.g. economic growth rates, unemployment
trends, inflation rates, human development index, quality of life index, sustainability
indexes) and how Australia's economy is performing (ACHEK050), Weeks 1 2.
2. The links between economic performance and living standards, the variations that
exist within and between economies and the possible causes (e.g. foreign
investment, employment rates and levels of debt) (ACHEK051), Weeks 1 2.
3. The distribution of income and wealth in the economy and the ways in which
governments can redistribute income (e.g. through taxation, social welfare payments)
(ACHEK051), Weeks 3 5.

There is a full listing of resources after the program for one week only, the first week.
Additional resources for following weeks are also available but in less detail.

Teacher input on Economic Indicators


GDP
GDP is a measure of the total value (in dollars) of all goods and services produced in
Australia over a specific period of time.
Gross means that tax or other deductions (such as depreciation) are not taken into account
when calculating GDP. GDP is a measure of value before these are deducted. For example,
machinery decreases in value over time due to wear (known as depreciation), but this is not
taken into account when calculating GDP.
Domestic refers to production within a country such as Australia.
Product includes goods (such as bread, mobile phones and clothes) and services (such as
haircuts, tax returns and school fees). Only final goods and services are included when
calculating GDP. For example, an apple pie is a final good because it is no longer being
used to produce another good.
Source: (Conti et al., 2016, p. 380)
Inflation
Inflation occurs when there is an increase in the general level of prices paid for goods and
services over a certain period of time. Usually we measure the change in prices on a yearly
basis. (Conti et al., 2016, p. 382)
Inflation is measured in Australia using the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Gini coefficient and the Lorenz curve
The Gini coefficient is calculated using the Lorenz curve. This curve graphs the cumulative
proportion of total income against the cumulative proportion of the population from lowest to
highest income. The curve starts at 0 and reaches a maximum of 1.3 A straight line would
denote that everyone has the same income; inequality is reflected in a convex curvature.

Lesson 3

Teacher input on Inflation Pt 1

Inflation occurs when there is an increase in the general level of prices paid for goods and
services over a certain period of time. Usually we measure the change in prices on a yearly
basis. Rising prices means the consumer must pay more for goods and services if they want
to continue to consume the same amount and maintain their standard of living. (Conti et al.,
2016, p. 382)
Inflation is caused by:
1. Increased demand for Goods and Services
2. Increase in costs of providing those goods and services

Lesson 4

Teacher input on Inflation Pt 2


How do we measure inflation?
Measuring inflation the Consumer Price Index
The Australian Bureau of Statistics measures inflation by using the Consumer Price Index
(CPI). The CPI measures the price change of a typical basket of goods and services
purchased by Australian households every quarter. The change in these prices from one
quarter to another is referred to as the inflation rate. We therefore know the rate at which
prices are changing in the economy. (Conti et al., 2016, p. 383)

Lesson 5

Teacher input Living Standards

A standard is a certain level of attainment or achievement. For example, you either pass
year 10 or you dont. When we talk about a countrys living standards, we are specifically
looking at what its like to live in that country in terms of the material and non-material
wellbeing of its citizens.
The living standard of a population is measured in two ways: material living standards and
non-material living standards. (Conti et al., 2016, p. 398)
1. Material living standards refer to our access to physical goods and services.
Question: Who can think of examples of material living standards?
2. Non-material living standards must also be considered when assessing the quality of
life
Question: Who can think of examples of non-material living standards?

Teacher input Measuring Living Standards


Material living standards are typically measured using the GDP.
Non-material living standards are hard to measure but the Organisation for Economic
Co-operation and Development (OECD) has attempted to measure it with their Better
Life Index.
The OECD Better Life Index GDP is an indicator of economic wellbeing that does not take
into consideration the environmental costs of producing goods and services. The OECD
Better Life Index seeks to provide a more holistic picture of the true living standards of 40
different countries by measuring progress based on 11 criteria, one of which is the
environment. (Conti et al., 2016, p. 398)

ASSESSMENT 2: LEARNING PROGRAM MARK THOMAS | 18608112

Lesson 6
The income that citizens earn on average is an important indicator of living standard, as it
means that consumers can buy basic goods and services such as food, shelter and clothing,
but also afford additional goods and services that make life easier. These additional goods
such as cars, refrigerators, washing machines and computer equipment provide an
additional level of convenience and enjoyment.(Conti et al., 2016, p. 400)
Therefore, the better a countrys economic performance, the higher incomes are and the
higher the standard of living is.

Teacher Input Government policy


Improving living standards is a key economic goal of many countries. This is mainly
because a higher living standard leads to a stronger and more prosperous nation and a
stronger and more prosperous nation in turn maintains a higher living standard. When the
citizens of a country are employed and earning an income, more goods and services can be
purchased. Government revenue earned from taxes paid by workers (from the money they
earn and the products they buy) can then be used for services such as education and health
care. These government services benefit us all.
The government of any country is constantly making economic policy decisions outlining
actions that need to be taken in order to manage different aspects of the economy. (Conti et
al., 2016, p. 406)

DEFINITION ___________________________________
GDP IS A MEASURE OF THE TOTAL VALUE (IN DOLLARS) OF ALL GOODS AND SERVICES PRODUCED IN AUSTRALIA OVER A
SPECIFIC PERIOD OF TIME.
GROSS MEANS THAT TAX OR OTHER DEDUCTIONS (SUCH AS DEPRECIATION) ARE NOT TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN
CALCULATING GDP. GDP IS A MEASURE OF VALUE BEFORE THESE ARE DEDUCTED. FOR EXAMPLE, MACHINERY DECREASES
IN VALUE OVER TIME DUE TO WEAR (KNOWN AS DEPRECIATION), BUT THIS IS NOT TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN
CALCULATING GDP.
___________________________________
DOMESTIC REFERS TO PRODUCTION WITHIN A COUNTRY SUCH AS AUSTRALIA.
PRODUCT INCLUDES GOODS (SUCH AS BREAD, MOBILE PHONES AND CLOTHES) AND SERVICES (SUCH AS HAIRCUTS, TAX
RETURNS AND SCHOOL FEES). ONLY FINAL GOODS AND SERVICES ARE INCLUDED WHEN CALCULATING GDP. FOR
EXAMPLE, AN APPLE PIE IS A FINAL GOOD BECAUSE IT IS NO LONGER BEING USED TO PRODUCE ANOTHER GOOD. ___________________________________

LESSON 6 MEASURING LIVING STANDARDS
___________________________________
THE INCOME THAT CITIZENS EARN ON AVERAGE IS AN IMPORTANT INDICATOR OF LIVING
STANDARD, AS IT MEANS THAT CONSUMERS CAN BUY BASIC GOODS AND SERVICES SUCH AS
FOOD, SHELTER AND CLOTHING, BUT ALSO AFFORD ADDITIONAL GOODS AND SERVICES THAT
MAKE LIFE EASIER. THESE ADDITIONAL GOODS SUCH AS CARS, REFRIGERATORS, WASHING
MACHINES AND COMPUTER EQUIPMENT PROVIDE AN ADDITIONAL LEVEL OF CONVENIENCE ___________________________________
AND ENJOYMENT.(CONTI ET AL., 2016, P. 400)
THEREFORE, THE BETTER A COUNTRYS ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE, THE HIGHER INCOMES ARE

___________________________________
AND THE HIGHER THE STANDARD OF LIVING IS.

LESSON 9 & 10 INCOME DISTRIBUTION
GOVERNMENT POLICY
IMPROVING LIVING STANDARDS IS A KEY ECONOMIC GOAL OF MANY COUNTRIES. THIS IS MAINLY
___________________________________
BECAUSE A HIGHER LIVING STANDARD LEADS TO A STRONGER AND MORE PROSPEROUS NATION AND
A STRONGER AND MORE PROSPEROUS NATION IN TURN MAINTAINS A HIGHER LIVING STANDARD.

___________________________________
WHEN THE CITIZENS OF A COUNTRY ARE EMPLOYED AND EARNING AN INCOME, MORE GOODS AND
SERVICES CAN BE PURCHASED. GOVERNMENT REVENUE EARNED FROM TAXES PAID BY WORKERS (FROM
THE MONEY THEY EARN AND THE PRODUCTS THEY BUY) CAN THEN BE USED FOR SERVICES SUCH AS
EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE. THESE GOVERNMENT SERVICES BENEFIT US ALL.
THE GOVERNMENT OF ANY COUNTRY IS CONSTANTLY MAKING ECONOMIC POLICY DECISIONS
OUTLINING ACTIONS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN IN ORDER TO MANAGE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE
ECONOMY. (CONTI ET AL., 2016, P. 406)
