Subject outline

This subject is designed to establish a knowledge and skill base for pre-service teachers in the areas of curriculum, pedagogy, planning, assessment and reporting in Languages Education for students in the primary, junior and middle years of schooling (Foundation - Year 10). The subject is designed to develop pre-service teachers' understanding of contemporary theory, concepts and skills related to students beginning the formal learning of languages and bridging institutional transitions (e.g. primary to secondary school) in ways that also address cross-curriculum priorities. Theoretical concepts, pedagogical principles as well as state and national curriculum structures related to languages other than English and developing plurilingualism are examined and applied in the evaluation, design and implementation of learning resources that are responsive to the needs of diverse learners.
