Each Qwiller individual unit of work contains a downloadable outline of the unit and scope and sequence, including an assessment task and differentiated activities catering for numerous student learning styles and needs.

The teaching and learning sequences in our individual units of work provide the activities for students to learn about a particular concept and develop their skills in creating an assessment task. 

Our individual units of work will guide your teaching and help your students to develop the knowledge and skills to be able to create a quality assessment task.

These units of work are for individual teacher use only. The same copyright laws apply as for printed books. If you wish for all teachers in the English faculty to use these units of work, consider a Secondary English Units of Work Subscription.Click here for more information.

Who are they for?

The individual units of work are for English teachers who teach English curriculums around the world. The proposed student age group for each individual unit of work is indicated on the information page for each unit of work.

All individual units of work are aligned with the Australian English Curriculum and the NSW English Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.
However, the units of work can still be used by teachers referring to different English curriculums around the world. Contact Qwiller to discuss how we can adapt the units of work to suit your needs. Click here to contact Qwiller.

How have they been developed?

Firstly we decide on the concept and key questions, unit focus, assessment task, outcomes (for NSW only) and curriculum content descriptions. We also consider cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities. Then we backward map by creating the scope and sequence, including teaching and learning strategies.

At Qwiller we consistently research innovative teaching strategies appropriate for teaching English to secondary students.
