2020 Year 9 Curriculum Handbook Introduction This curriculum guide provides information regarding the broad range of programs offered at Marryatville High School and specific course descriptions of subjects within these programs. It is designed to provide students the important information needed to make informed decisions about potential and preferred pathways for schooling and future pathways and careers. At Marryatville High School, we strive to provide all students the capabilities required to be active global citizens. Students are encouraged to learn, think creatively, critically and independently and to continue to aim for personal achievements in a student-centred learning environment. Subject Selection and Course Counselling Process Students will receive information regarding the subject selection process during Term 3. Students will have the opportunity to gain advice on potential pathways and study options with Parents, Homegroup teachers, Learning Area Leaders, Year Level Leaders, Subject Specific Staff and Course Counsellors. Engaging in conversations with as many people as possible is crucial to ensure the correct course is selected in the subject selection process. Please note that recommendations are: To be used as a guide for student subject choice Indicate that a student is capable of success in that subject area Not a should do that subject Students should be discouraged from choosing against recommendations. Please note on the selection form or in your HG folder (comments section) if a student chooses against recommendations Subjects without recommendations = will accept any students Recommendations to all Students Before selecting a subject or course there are a number of important steps to consider: Possible future pathways based on current levels of performance, as well as ambitions and capabilities. Success with, and enjoyment of current subjects. Plans and goals for the future and subjects required to achieve these goals. Requirements of university, TAFE enrolment or employment. Subject Availability Every effort will be made to place students into the subjects of their choice. However, the availability of subjects offered will be dependent on the number of students selecting the subject and staff availability. Students will be supported in selecting an alternative subject if needed. Course re-counselling will occur in Term 4 for any student who may need to refine their selections as a result of the timetabling process or pathway changes. Once the timetable has been set, very little space is available to students wanting to change subjects in Term 1.

Students undertake a common curriculum depending on the student s enrolment in either Special Interest Music or Tennis. The curriculum allows students to access a greater range of subjects as they progress from Year 8 to 10. The following table indicates the subjects offered for courses studied at Year 9. Students need to accumulate a total of 14 semesters to be enrolled as a full time student. Students who undertake Special Interest Tennis, Special Interest Music or the Elective Music have specific subjects aligned to this area of study and as a result elective choices are less in number.

The five Arts subjects in the Australian Curriculum are Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music, and Visual Arts. Together they provide opportunities for students to learn how to create, design, represent, communicate and share their imagined and conceptual ideas, emotions, observations and experiences. At Marryatville High School we offer five subjects of the Australian Curriculum Arts curriculum. Dance Drama Music Media Arts Visual Arts Rich in tradition, the Arts play a major role in the development and expression of cultures and communities, locally, nationally and globally. Students communicate ideas in current, traditional and emerging forms and use arts knowledge and understanding to make sense of their world. The Australian Curriculum: The Arts values, respects and explores the significant contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to Australia s arts heritage and contemporary arts practices through their distinctive ways of representing and communicating knowledge, traditions and experience. In the Arts, students learn as artists and audience through the intellectual, emotional and sensory experiences of the Arts. They acquire knowledge, skills and understanding specific to the Arts subjects and develop a critical understanding that informs decision making and aesthetic choices. Through the Arts, students learn to express their ideas, thoughts and opinions as they discover and interpret the world. They learn that designing, producing and resolving their work is as essential to learning in the Arts as is creating a finished artwork. Students develop their Arts knowledge and aesthetic understanding through a growing comprehension of the distinct and related languages, symbols, techniques, processes and skills of the Arts subjects. Arts learning provides students with opportunities to engage with creative industries and arts professionals. The Arts entertain, challenge, provoke responses and enrich our knowledge of self, communities, world cultures and histories. The Arts contribute to the development of confident and creative individuals, nurturing and challenging active and informed citizens. Learning in the Arts is based on cognitive, affective and sensory/kinaesthetic response to arts practices as students revisit increasingly complex content, skills and processes with developing confidence and sophistication across their years of learning. By creating and analysing art works students develop transversal capabilities such as Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social, Information and Communication Technology, Ethical and Intercultural Understandings This rationale is extended and complemented by specific rationales for each Arts subject. Dance This rationale complements and extends the rationale for The Arts learning area. Dance is expressive movement with purpose and form. Through dance, students represent, question and celebrate human experience, using the body as the instrument and movement as the medium for personal, social, emotional, spiritual and physical communication. Like all art forms, dance has the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging students to reach their creative and expressive potential. Dance enables students to develop a movement vocabulary with which to explore and refine imaginative ways of moving individually and collaboratively. Students choreograph, rehearse, perform and respond as they engage with dance practice and practitioners in their own and others cultures and communities. Students use the elements of dance to explore choreography and performance and to practise choreographic, technical and expressive skills. They respond to their own and others dances using physical and verbal communication. Active participation as dancers, choreographers and audiences promotes students wellbeing and social inclusion. Learning in and through dance enhances students knowledge and understanding of diverse cultures and contexts and develops their personal, social and cultural identity. In making and analysing dance students develop capabilities such as Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social, Information and Communication Technology, Ethical and Intercultural Understandings. Drama This rationale complements and extends the rationale for The Arts learning area. Drama is the expression and exploration of personal, cultural and social worlds through role and situation that engages, entertains and challenges. Students create meaning as drama makers, performers and audiences as they enjoy and analyse their own and others stories and points of view. Like all art forms, drama has the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, excite the imagination and encourage students to reach their creative and expressive potential. Drama enables students to imagine and participate in exploration of their worlds, individually and collaboratively. Students actively use body, gesture, movement, voice and language, taking on roles to explore and depict real and imagined worlds. They create, rehearse, perform and respond using the elements and conventions of drama and emerging and existing technologies available to them. They are excited by exploring their imagination and taking risks in storytelling through role and dramatic action. Students develop a sense of inquiry and empathy by exploring the diversity of drama in the contemporary world and in other times, traditions, places and cultures. In making and staging drama students develop capabilities such as Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social, Information and Communication Technology, Ethical and Intercultural Understandings. Media Arts This rationale complements and extends the rationale for The Arts learning area. Media Arts involves creating representations of the world and telling stories through communications technologies such as television, film, video, newspapers, radio, video games, the internet and mobile media. Media Arts connects audiences, purposes and ideas, exploring concepts and viewpoints through the creative use of materials and technologies. Like all art forms, media arts has the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging students to reach their creative and expressive potential. Media Arts enables students to create and communicate representations of diverse worlds and investigate the impact and influence of media artworks on those worlds, both individually and collaboratively. As an art form evolving in the twenty-first century, Media Arts enables students to use existing and emerging technologies as they explore imagery, text and sound and create meaning as they participate in, experiment with and interpret diverse cultures and communications practices. Students learn to be critically aware of ways that the media are culturally used and negotiated, and are dynamic and central to the way they make sense of the world and of themselves. They learn to interpret, analyse and develop media practices through their media arts making experiences. They are inspired to imagine, collaborate and take on responsibilities in planning, designing
