The teacher describes how she led an initiative to rethink the way her school taught maths. As part of this process, she adopted a team teaching approach with colleagues. Lessons are designed to meet the specific learning needs of students. In this lesson, a data collecting activity has been presented in three different ways to make it both accessible and challenging to all  ability levels in the class. Students choose the task most appropriate to their level. Students reflect on their learning at the end of the lesson, which provides valuable information for the teacher about their activity choices
Sunshine College is culturally diverse, co-educational, secondary school situated across 5 campuses in Melbourne.

These innovations are based on or derived from the understanding that students learn best through research & development processes and realistic applications. Staff have worked together to develop a “core plus” instructional model that allows for domain specific innovation and creativity but is underpinned across all domains by five core instructional practice principles: learning Intention articulated, readiness for Learning determined, activities that target individual success, quality Feedback, and reflection. The performance and development culture is based around professional learning teams where curriculum is collaboratively designed and consistently delivered.
