Auslan
Study Design
The Victorian Curriculum has an Auslan Study Design which
helps VCE Auslan teachers prepare their Auslan
curriculum for Years 11 and 12.
(You can also contact them and ask them for an
Auslan Study Design Grammar Video, it is an
excellent teaching tool as it shows you examples of Auslan
grammar as they are being signed out and can be used to show and explain to VCE
Auslan students).
Past Examinations
Past Examinations are invaluable teaching tools as they include past exam Auslan videos and exam
questions. This will help VCE Auslan teachers to get an idea of what to expect in
upcoming VCE Auslan examinations. The Auslan teacher can use this to show and
explain to VCE Auslan students and help them to practice and gain confidence for
their upcoming Auslan VCE examinations.
