EDU5PEL

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This is a key primary subject in which students develop a firm grounding in the contemporary pedagogies required for teaching literacy, language and literature. Students participate in a blend of online learning experiences and school visits involving explicit observation and teaching practice, designed to expand their personal knowledge and understanding of the new literacies in the twenty-first century. Students develop strategies to help build confidence to teach in this subject by exploring the way primary classrooms can be designed to evolve as multimodal literacy communities.  

This subject includes five (5) single placement days observing, teaching and assessing as well as a ten (10) day block of teaching literacy in an F-2 class. Pre-service teachers will also be expected to observe the literacy block in grade 5 and 6 level during their time at the school.
