Edekit Units include the following sections:

  • Heading. This indicates the KLA, unit name and the timing appropriate for the teaching unit.

    Each unit has been assigned a number of indicative hours based on syllabus requirements and work required. Unless mandated, timing can be a guideline as students' prior learning and experiences may alter the implementation time required for skills, knowledge and understanding development.

    In addition, the teacher can add their name, and the dates for unit commencement and completion.
  • Overview. Provides a contextual overview of the unit. The purpose of the overview is to provide teachers with an outline of the intent of the unit. It should be viewed as 'setting the framework' for the unit.

  • Outcomes. This indicates what knowledge and/or skills the student should expect to have after completing the unit.

  • Syllabus Extracts. Each teaching program unit contains the relevant syllabus extract so that relationships between the syllabus and teaching strategies are identifiable - 'learn to', 'learn about'. This also includes the following corresponding elements:
    • Suggested teaching and learning strategies. These demonstrate possible unpacking of the syllabus and the amalgamation of the 'learn to's' and 'learn abouts' from the syllabus. While a sequence is suggested, teachers may well decide to use a different organisation of activities or different activities altogether to implement the syllabus.
    • Resources and references. These list possible useful texts, websites, videos and software have been identified. The lists are not exhaustive and will continually be adapted and grow.
  • Resources. This lists resources applicable to the whole unit.
