TLSC LEARNER MODEL

Rationale

The Learner Model at Taylors Lakes Secondary College is central to student growth in both their learning and their wellbeing. The model emphasises the relationship between the two domains of Instructional Practice and Student Health and Wellbeing.

At Taylors Lakes Secondary College, we focus on the 6Cs of Character, Citizenship, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking as we believe that developing these interdisciplinary competencies in our students will best prepare them to actively engage in the world around them. Central to our model are elements integral to developing our students’ wellbeing by equipping them with the skills they need to build resilience and flourish. Our model supports students' emotional and physical wellbeing, their engagement in learning, their sense of self and promotes positive relationships. Our model is encased by the e5 Instructional Model used by our teachers, which allows our students to understand a concept overtime through a series of established phases. This provides an overview of the learning cycle and breaks it down into five phases of instruction: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.

 

The three concentric circles of TLSC Learner Model are of equal importance and work together in differentiated ways to support all TLSC learners with their learning journey.

Teachers will...

  • create a differentiated learning environment in which students are intellectually engaged and have active student voice

  • create a culture in which the health and wellbeing of students is central to the learning success of students

  • develop the capacity of students and staff to improve teaching and learning, with an emphasis on authentic learning, deep learning and feedback

  • create a culture in which the health and wellbeing of students is central to the learning success of students

Students will...

  • engage fully, feel valued and positive about their learning

  • show understanding of lesson structures and use consistent language of e5

  • reflect and provide feedback on deep learning experiences

  • access the 6Cs in their learning

  • monitor health and wellbeing and implement a range of strategies to support wellbeing

  • articulate expected behaviours and school values
