Programming task - planning a unit of work

Participants are encouraged to create integrated units of work that are innovative and reflect your school context.


The integrated unit of work can:


  • Integrate content from several related (2-4) modules to form unit of work and explore content through one or more movement applications
  • Focus primarily on single movement application and explore various modules through this context
  • Design a school-developed module with additional content not included in syllabus modules (endorsement not required)
