Ms Mary Gallagher and Ms Theresa Shellshear
Mary and Theresa present an excellent example of how collegial collaboration is essential to achieve the best learning outcomes for our students. Their case study, of assessment across Education units, linking maths and English literacy, is an exemplar of formative assessment and how it benefits all students, regardless of background.
