Professional Justification

Teachers need to ensure they are able to adapt their classrooms to the diverse needs of their students (Lyons,

Ford & Slee, 2014). The stage 6 syllabus outlines what main focus question and outcomes the students must

be taught in the duration of the course to complete their HSC. However, teachers are responsible for

providing students with tailored learning for their specific needs as all classroom are different. This

assessment task provides a pre-lesson, an online comparative study and two post lesson which are designed

to provide students with the best possible chance of successfully completing their PDHPE HSC exam. This

personal justification will outline the different teaching methods and models which were used to determine

the three aspects of this assessment task.

Pre-lesson

Both the pre and post lessons involve some form of cooperative learning. A study by Brought and colleagues

(2010) assessed the benefits of paring students by ability which was used in both the pre and post lesson.

The study found that when paring low quartile students with the higher quartile students, the low quartile

students performed better than when working alone. This also helps to create an inclusive classroom by

getting all students interacting with one another regardless of their social circles outside the classroom.

It is important to scaffold learning in the simplest way possible. The pre-lesson is a good recap on a

scaffolding technique used by students to help them answer short answer and extended response questions.

The S.E.A.L. (Statement, Expand, Application, Link) approach is used in guidance with the zone of

proximal development to help narrow the gap of what students need guidance with and what they can do

independently (Verenikina, 2008). This approach helps make questions seem more basic and can help guide

these students to provide a simple answer that covers the content.

Online comparative study

The online comparative study is clearly an activity for preparing students specifically for the HSC. The

Comparative study begins with a video about the PDHPE exam and what students should expect and how

they can best answer questions. This puts the online comparative study into content for students as a tool of
18
revision. The study is complied with past PDHPE HSC papers from 2008 to 2015. These are used as they

are the sort of themes that will be tested in the exam and also students can become more familiar with the

type of wording that is used in HSC papers.

As stated the study begins with a video about PDHPE exams but also has other videos in the study. Learners

are diverse and all have different ways of learning including Visual, Audio and kinaesthetic. While being

limited to an ICT platform it is important to try and cover as many of these learners as possible which is why

the videos are used. These satisfy the visual and audio learns which can increase their learning outcomes

from this online comparative study.

Post lesson

Blooms taxonomy is a framework which is applied to teaching to help move students away from the bottom

end of the scale knowledge to the high end including analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Knowledge requires

students to only recall specific information, without any high cognitive processes taking place. In this

assessment it aims to move students up the blooms taxonomy to evaluation. This required students to make

judgements about the value of materials and methods for a given purpose. While this is used throughout the

assessment it is easy to see its application in the post lesson as it requires students to make judgements about

other peoples work, including their own and to use this as a guidance to improving their learning.

As the blooms taxonomy requires students to make judgement about their own work, this causes students to

engage in self-assessment. Self-assessment is an excellent way for students to identify where they went

wrong or right in answers to help reproduce higher quality work (SELF*ASS). This begins with teacher

guided learning with students completing a self-assessment activity as a class. Teacher guided learning is a

good way to introduce something new to students before letting them interact with this new knowledge and

skills (Barnett & Francis, 2012). This then moves a more student centred approach. Edwards article helps

reinforce the self-assessment learning experience stating that self-grading, especially of homework, does

accrue some significant benefits(2008). Students obtain instant feedback without having to wait for the

19
teacher to mark their work. Edward also explains that students critique their own work become more critical

of their writing and this creates internal motivation for them to answer questions better. The core to these

lessons are building self-evaluation skills, which is important for students as it allowed them to give internal

feedback and also interpret that feedback more effectively (Buck & Trauth, 2009)..

As mentioned student centred earning is used in this assessment. Student centred learning is important for

the development of communication and collaborative skills, students learn to ask and answer question

independently and students are more interested in learning activities (Concodia Online Education, 2012).

Learning is always about the students which is why it is important for lessons to be student centred.

Conclusion

It is always important to first consider the needs of your students before creating lessons, unit outlines,

assessment tasks and homework activities. A teacher should always put the students needs first and this

should influence their teaching pedagogy to push all HSC students towards a band 6. It is vital you not only

nurture your gifted students but push you lower quartile students up the bands for their own benefit. Overall

this assessment as tried to implement a variety of different techniques to try and improve student

achievement level in the HSC.
