Benefits of planning your lessons with Open Stage
Students are given a coherent and engaging story across the whole unit. The step-by-step lessons enable students to gradually master key concepts and retain knowledge.
Saves teacher time
Instead of designing lessons from scratch, you can spend your time preparing to deliver lessons and engaging with your students.
Open Stage uses research about knowledge-rich curriculum design and evidence-based instruction to develop all of our resources.
You can follow the whole sequence of learning, or just take the parts that best fit with your school's existing teaching program.
No tech required
There is nothing to install and no technology to implement. We use the tools you already work with: documents, slides and videos.
Aligned to the Australian Curriculum
Units align to the new Australian Curriculum while still covering the existing curriculum - the perfect bridge for your curriculum transition.
How it works
Open Stage helps teacher teams to focus their time on adaption and execution rather than planning lessons from scratch.
Start with lesson study rather than lesson planning. Teacher teams unpack the shared Open Stage units, learning objectives, assessment, timing, and connections with other learning areas.
Adapt flexible resources
Make changes and re-write lessons as much or as little as required. Consider readings, lesson objectives, and slides, and adjust them depending on what works best for your school and students.
Use the Lesson Guides to stay focused on the key learning objectives. Follow the expert video guides and teaching tips. Student workbooks and slides reduce the workload for daily lesson prep.
With shared teaching resources, colleagues can more easily discuss how the lesson went and what was learned. Teachers can use classroom observation and formative assessment data to improve future teaching.
