Please find below an update on the progress of the Australian Curriculum: The Arts from ACARA.
Please take the time to read the draft work and spread the word to your colleagues.
Validation of the F-10 Australian Curriculum: The Arts achievement standards commenced on 11 February 2013. The purpose of validation is to ensure that the achievement standards provide a clear progression of achievement across each band of learning. As part of this process, ACARA hosts workshops with teachers and curriculum experts from across the country to critique and provide feedback about the pitch, progression and clarity of the achievement standards. The revised curriculum prepared for the validation of achievement standards is available for viewing on the ACARA website (from 25 February). This is draft work in progress, not a formal consultation document. Additional refinements are proceeding in response to feedback from participants in the validation process.
In late March 2013 the final F-10 Australian Curriculum: The Arts will be presented to the ACARA Board for approval. Subject to endorsement by Ministers of Education in May 2013 the curriculum will. be published on the Australian Curriculum website in mid-2013.
