Italian

Ciao! Buongiorno! Come stai? Benvenuti

In 2019 the students and teachers at Christ the King have adopted a new methodology to learning Italian. Instead of a one hour specialist lesson each week, the students and teachers practise common phrases and accompanying gestures everyday. At Christ the King the students help to lead the instruction by making instructional videos for teachers and students to use each week. As such teachers and students are co-learners of the Italian Language. However in this model the classroom teacher is still responsible for collecting evidence of student progression and accurately reporting it against the achievement standards as stated in the Victorian Curriculum. Teachers are supported and provided with the direction by the Italian Coach, Keegan Doherty each term.
