Subject outline

This subject is designed to establish a knowledge and skill-base for pre-service teachers in curriculum, pedagogy, planning, assessment and reporting in secondary-level Humanities (Levels/Years 7-10). The subject will facilitate and support pre-service teachers developing understandings of contemporary theory, concepts and skills in The Humanities. Pre-service teachers will be supported to consider, demonstrate and reflect on theoretically-, pedagogically- and research-informed professional understanding of Secondary Humanities concepts, issues and developments, assessment requirements and practice, safety responsibilities, application of learning technologies, and resources. Theoretical concepts, pedagogical principles and stateand national curriculum frameworks within Humanities will be examined and applied across the learning activities. These skills and understandings will be assessed through pre-service teachers evaluation, design and implementation of learning sequences and resources that are responsive to the needs of diverse learners and incorporate literacies, numeracies and digital technologies.
