Australian Curriculum General Capabilities Checklist

I needed a quick way to record my use of the general Capabilities in my my programs. I tried a few different configurations, but this one seems to work well.

There’s a title section at the top for unit title, year level and date. The capabilities are in two sections: ‘Supporting students to become successful learners’ and ‘Developing ways of being, behaving and learning to live with others’. There’s a checklist of elements for each capability with a small section for notes. I use this to jot down what I’m specifically doing in that unit to teach / assess the element.

Since using the checklist, I’m discovering that I’m actually teaching to the capabilities more than I thought. The element descriptions are a handy reminder of the scope of each capability too.

Two versions are available for download: a Word file that you can edit and a pdf version.
