Integrated Studies (Year 7 and Year 8)

Students with educational needs are identified and invited to join Integrated Studies. This course provides assistance in building general organisational and study skills, language and literacy skills and mathematical concepts. The small group setting enables the identification and development of specific learning goals for each student and targeted intervention in curriculum and assessment support including: 

  • Improving general curricular knowledge
  • Task identification
  • Scaffolding and understanding rubrics 

Students are also supported to reflect on their: 

  • Executive functioning skills
  • Working memory
  • Flexible thinking
  • Self-regulation and attention spans
  • Self-monitoring
  • Task identification
  • Progress and completion of assessment 

The Integrated Studies teacher also liaises with subject teachers to offer specific subject-related support. Integrated Studies takes the place of a language subject in both Years 7 and 8.
