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 English as an additional language for students in the later years of formal learning and adult education contexts. The subject is designed to consolidate pre-service teachers' understanding of contemporary theory, concepts and skills related to students in more advanced levels of formal school learning of English as an additional language or in the later stages of adult education programs. 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 English as an additional language. Students will apply their insights in the evaluation, design and implementation of learning resources that are responsive to the needs of diverse learners in school and adult education settings.
