At Campbell High School, we focus on improving literacy to improve student communication in all its many forms. The Literacy Handbook has been created to assist and support ALL students to achieve the best possible results when completing classwork and homework. The BSSS handbook "What's plagiarism? How you can avoid it" contains comprehensive information including examples on Harvard bibliographies and in-text citations. This will assist students in the creation of essays, scientific reports and articles.
Here is the Campbell High School's Text Type Book that you can use when completing assignments and homework. Before you write and submit your 'good copy' make sure you have used correct text type format and edited your work. Use this booklet as a reference so that you can produce work that is at your best. If you have any questions or need assistance in using this Text Type Book please contact Susan Daintith or your classroom teacher.
Campbell High's Homework Wheel - how to maximise your child's learning at home.
Sometimes your child may not have homework, in fact research suggests that traditional homework is not a productive learning tool for young people in the 21st century.
We have created this simple framework to assist you in developing your child's whole self through a never ending process (the wheel). The wheel considers 21st learning skills [communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity] to optimise their big picture learning. If your child suggests they have no homework, please refer to the Homework Wheel to guide further conversation.
Any feedback you may have on our Homework Wheel is appreciated.
