The newly accredited study due for implementation in 2018 moves away from a ‘process approach’ and rote learning inherent in the previous study. Instead, the new study moves to a greater use of higher order skills including the application of legal theory to practical cases and the need for students to synthesise information. Lisa will explore the concept of synthesis and how it can be applied to the study including to the writing of assessment tasks.

Are you confident in the implementation and delivery of School-assessed Coursework in VCE Legal Studies? Presented by Peter F Hughes of Robinvale Secondary College, this presentation will explore the 'how to' of the design and assessment of VCE Legal Studies School-assessed Coursework.

In this professional learning program you will

  • explore the 'do's and don'ts' of SACs
  • learn what to consider when designing a SAC
  • consider what to look for when using a SAC created by someone else
  • receive an overview of the Study Design requirements
  • see examples of SACs with varying degrees of difficulty
  • examine sample student responses to a SAC
  • learn what to consider when grading student responses.

Are you trying to teach students how to respond to command terms in SACs or exam questions? The first half of this workshop provides participants with a method to guide students in structuring SAC and exam responses in order to improve their learning outcomes.  And do you feel that SAC or test hand back time is empty with students fixated only on the mark they receive? The second half of the workshop addresses methods of supporting students to focus on the learning they need to do, and not just the mark.
