Hi Jeanette, Sorry I didn't see your post. We start year 9 with the History of the Aussie Church - this is the first time I've taught it and I'm finding it a little dry. The project we'll start soon is based on the 25 of the Best from the RESource website - so I think that'll be a bit more interesting and student centred. Hope your year has started well. Jo

Hi all,

I've just joined the group. I teach at a large Catholic boys school in Geelong, Vic. This year I have years 9 & 10 RE and I co-ordinate the community service in the school. Looking forward to sharing with you. Is there a twitter hashtag used for Catholic teachers in Aus? Cheers

Stop 20th Century Thinking

In the 21st Century our approach to education can and should be very different from previous centuries. The basic skills we teach are pretty much the same, but the tools we have to use require a different approach, as well as additional and very different literacies from centuries past.
