Subject outline

This subject engages pre-service teachers with skills required for academic literacy. This is scaffolded through a diagnostic test where pre-service teachers will establish areas of strength and areas that require development. The subject deals with the components and conventions of English language, and the developmental stages of language and literacy learning. Pre-service teachers will also develop proficiency in the application of English language concepts, critical thinking and analytical writing skills. Pre-service teachers will extend their conceptual understanding, knowledge and skills in professional and academic literacy practices. Active involvement in this subject supports the skill development in literacy completion of the hurdle task.
