About the SIEU lesson structure
Students in the SIEU participate in 30 lessons a week - six lessons per day. Most students will have:
- three lessons of English
- one lesson of Mathematics
- two option classes.
Usually, students will have two lessons of English which focus on reading and writing skills and one lesson which develops listening and speaking skills.
Maths classes within the SIEU, cater for the needs of students at their ability level and follow the Northern Territory Curriculum Framework.
Some students are able to access mainstream Mathematics courses in Year 10 and Stage 1 (Year 11), if they have high level mathematical skills and enough English language to enable them to be successful.
Students are able to choose from a range of option classes. These classes aim to provide students with curriculum knowledge, the opportunity to experience a variety of curriculum areas, as well as develop the English language skills needed for mainstream learning. Some option courses are compulsory.
