Work samples

The Victorian Curriculum F–10: English curriculum work samples provide teachers with examples of student learning achievements in each mode: Reading and Viewing, Writing, Speaking and Listening.

The Reading and Viewing and Speaking and Listening work samples feature annotated videos of students reading and discussing texts, and the Writing work samples feature annotated images of written work. At the end of the annotations, advice is provided to support the planning of the next stage of student learning.

The work samples support teachers to understand the Victorian Curriculum F-10: English curriculum achievement standards, and assist them to develop targeted teaching and learning plans and to make consistent on-balance judgements about student achievement.

Schools may use these work samples as part of professional discussions to support teachers to deepen their understanding of the levels of achievement articulated in the curriculum.

These work samples are representative of typical tasks and activities in which students regularly participate, rather than exemplars. The work samples are not a collection or a set sequence of work, nor is there a pre-determined number at each level. Each sample may vary in terms of how much student time was involved in undertaking the task or the degree of support provided by the teacher. As a consequence each work sample may include errors, spelling mistakes and individual student opinions.

Additional work samples will be published in 2019. To stay up to date please subscribe to the F–10 Subscriber update.
