The Ballarat High School Instructional Model has been developed by staff, in consultation with students and parents, and is unique to Ballarat High School.
Our model is based on the Gradual Release of Responsibility Theory. This theory centres on the idea that there is a shared responsibility for learning between teacher and student but the weight of responsibility is transferred from the teacher to the student as the student becomes more independent with their learning.
This model informs all aspects teaching and learning at our school and supports our vision:
Ballarat High School is a learning community where every person is valued, respected and challenged as a learner.
