Towards an AustralianCurriculum’ (from draft, 09)
“ To achieve the stated aims of the Australian science curriculum it is proposed that there needs to be less emphasis on a transmission model of pedagogy and more emphasis on a model of student engagement and inquiry .
The driving force of the transmission model is teacher explanation whereas the learning engine for inquiry is based on teacher questions and discussion.
Teacher explanation is still important but it should be seen as one skill in a broad repertoire of teaching skills.”
