What is the annual subscription about?

The annual subscription runs from August to August each year. By August of each year new units and work ebooks will be available. This will help you with your planning for the coming year. Each year in August membership is renewed and new units and work ebooks are added. However you will always have access to the units of work and workbooks from the year you subscribed. 

Each Qwiller 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 the units of work provide the activities for students to learn about a particular concept and develop their skills in writing, reading, speaking, creating and listening about that concept.

The units of work and work ebooks 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 the purchasing school's faculty use only. Each staff member is able to store each unit and work ebook on their computer. The work ebooks are able to be transferred to students, although restrictions apply for printing.

Who are they for?

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

At the moment all our units of work and work ebooks are aligned with years 7-12 Australian English Curriculum and the years 7-12 NSW English Syllabi. However, the units of work and work ebooks can still be used by teachers referring to different English curriculums around the world.

How have they been developed?

Firstly we decide on the concept, key questions, unit focus, assessment task 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 and content appropriate for teaching English to secondary students. We strive to make our resources engaging, thought provoking and relevant to students and teachers.
