MAPPEN is an online curriculum and professional learning solution for Australian primary schools. It provides teachers with 32 expertly crafted integrated units plus built-in professional learning.
We asked the teachers at one of our schools to describe MAPPEN in their own words, this is what they said.
Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
MAPPEN has versions for the following curriculum authorities:
- ACARA – Australian Curriculum
- VCAA – Victorian Curriculum
- NESA – NSW Syllabuses
- SCASA – Western Australian Curriculum
Units are regularly updated to ensure they meet the latest mandated standards and we are always working to improve the clarity and practicality of our units.
Rich Integrated Curriculum for Australian Primary Schools
The integrated units address content in the following areas:
- Civics and Citizenship
- Economics and Business
- Critical and Creative Thinking
- Ethical Understanding Capability
- Personal and Social Capability
- Intercultural Capability
With the support of rubrics, each unit is expertly scaffolded towards a rich assessment task.
Before they begin each unit, MAPPEN students are immersed in the real world application of what they will be learning. Students complete a pre-test to assess their understanding and skills and develop questions to be answered during the unit.
Students are explicitly taught new terminology relating to each unit and where appropriate they learn writing, reading and communication skills, and mathematical concepts.
