Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject is designed to extend 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 later years of formal learning or with extensive prior experience of the language being taught. The subject is designed to consolidate pre-service teachers' understanding of contemporary theory, concepts and skills related to students at advanced levels of formal learning of languages because of extended school or other experiences in the language. The approach taken will also address cross-curriculum priorities. Students will deepen insights into theoretical concepts, pedagogical principles for developing advanced levels of plurilingualism in relation to state and national curriculum structures and Year 11 & 12 assessment requirements related to languages other than English. Students will apply their insights in the evaluation, design and implementation of learning resources that are responsive to the needs of diverse learners with extensive prior experiences in the relevant language.
