1 The ESSINGTON SCHOOL DARWIN YEAR 8 Possible Electives Semester

2

3 MIDDLE SCHOOL ELECTIVE SELECTION YEAR 8 - SEMESTER ONE, 2016 As part of the Year 8 Curriculum, students have the opportunity to study additional elective subjects designed to provide choice and challenge for our students. The elective subjects can be from various Key Learning Areas including The Arts, Technology, Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Health, Languages Other Than English, Business, Science or English. Elective subjects are studied once a week for a double lesson. The electives are organised into elective blocks and students must select one elective in each of the three Year 8 elective blocks. Students in Year 8 therefore study three electives a week for Terms 1 and 2, Semester 1. Some electives may have prerequisite requirements. Others may incur a levy to offset the cost of this program. Some electives are for students commencing their study in this area, whilst others are offered at advanced level. Details of the electives offered during Semester 1, including a short descriptor for each elective, are included in this document. Year 8 students need to select three electives for Semester 1. The electives run for an entire Semester (Terms 1 + 2). Siobhan Nox Acting Assistant Principal Curriculum Daniel Hogg Timetable and Administration Coordinator November, 2015 P a g e 3

4 ART: VISUAL Students electing to participate in Visual Arts will explore a range of media including pencil, paints, collage and printmaking. Essential Visual Arts skills will be developed through creative and fun projects. No previous Art experience needed. BUSINESS STUDIES The Business Studies elective provides students with an opportunity to run their own small business within the school environment as well as delve into the exciting world of share trading. Students learn about vital aspects of business planning and marketing and apply this knowledge as they compete against their classmates during a Small Business Day event held during lunchtime at school. Students are also introduced to the world of share trading as they are challenged to select and maintain a portfolio of shares using notional money and real share prices from the S&P ASX-50. In doing this, students will have the opportunity to learn about public companies, what shares are, why they are traded, information interpretation, as well as some basic methods of valuing a company s shares. DANCE - Advanced The Dance Elective is designed to meet the Australian Arts Curriculum outcomes of making and responding to art through dance. Students will develop and apply understanding of the processes of dance composition for choreography using a range of dance elements, genres, styles, techniques, conventions and practices. The Advanced elective offers a more committed focus to prepare students for Senior dance studies by following similar assessment requirements and grading criteria. DANCE - Developing The Dance Elective is designed to meet the Australian Arts Curriculum outcomes of making and responding to art through dance. Students will develop and apply understanding of the processes of dance composition for choreography using a range of dance elements, genres, styles, techniques, conventions and practices. The Developing elective offers more of a focus of participation and exploring dance as an art form. Assessment requirements will not be as prescriptive as in Advanced Dance elective. Students may or may not have aspirations to study Senior dance. Course tasks for both Advanced and Developing Elective classes: Technique: Students will learn contemporary style dance techniques during classes that will be structured into small exercises performed to set music. Development of technical skill will be assessed in a technique exam. P a g e 4

5 Composition: The elements of dance composition and basic choreographic devices are taught, allowing students to compose their own creative dance sequences in small groups. Performance: Students learn a set choreographed dance during classes and are required to rehearse and memorise this choreography in preparation for performance. Students participate in performances to demonstrate their learnt skills and develop confidence, stage art skills, performance ethics and presentation style. Appreciation and Analysis Portfolio: Students will develop and apply understanding of the processes of dance composition for choreography using a range of dance elements, genres, styles, techniques, conventions and practices. They will use the language of dance to analyse and respond critically to dance works through the construction of a folio of worksheets and tasks.
