Subject outline

In this subject, the emphasis is on effective teaching and learning of English Language, Literature and Literacy in an Australian context for students in the junior and middle years of secondary school (Years 7-10), drawing upon the expectations and structures of current curriculum and professional frameworks.  This unit is designed to establish a knowledge and skill base for pre-service teachers in the areas of curriculum, pedagogy, content knowledge, planning, classroom implementation, assessment and reporting, and reflection.


Pre-service teachers consider, demonstrate and reflect upon the application of method-specific concepts, issues and developments, inclusive practice, safety and legal responsibilities, and the application of current and emerging learning technologies in their teaching. They explore the use of text and multi-modal materials in the evaluation, design and implementation of learning activities and resources that are responsive to the needs of diverse learners.
