Teaching materials

Teaching resources can be found on the following websites.

Teaching and Learning exchange (TaLe)
Resources for teachers and students are available on the Public section of the TaLe website, particularly in Sites2See.

Henry Parkes Equity Resource Centre  
This provides a range of resources to community languages schools including teaching and learning materials and multimedia classroom resources. After you have set up an account, you may borrow language resources online and use a reply paid envelope to return the resources to the library. Please contact the program if you would like more information about access to the HPERC.

NSW Education Standards Authority 
The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) provides free online syllabuses. These include language teaching syllabuses for Kindergarten to Year 12 students. Support materials are also provided to help teachers understand the syllabuses. Most community languages schools use these syllabuses as a basis for their teaching.

K-10 language syllabuses
11-12 language syllabuses

Design your own syllabus
If there is no syllabus available in your language, our program education officers can help you design a course. We also regularly run training sessions and other activities to help schools create quality teaching materials and share ideas. Contact our program education officers.

You might also consider using teaching materials provided by your country of origin's education department to supplement your materials.
