Subject outline

In this capstone subject pre-service teachers apply the principles and practices of teaching and learning to independently plan and execute teaching units. The subject integrates theory and practice through reflection, observation, inquiry and adaptation to a range of school contexts. The assessment tasks include the scaffolded development of a literature review with a focus on literacy and numeracy development. The placement hurdle incorporates a Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA). The GTPA enables graduate teachers to demonstrate how they align curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, taking account of school contexts and learner diversity. The GTPA addresses 5 practices, of which a minimum of 4 must be of a satisfactory standard. The subject provides confirmation of graduate teachers readiness for classroom teaching. Compulsory Professional Experience: Pre-service teachers must undertake this 25 day professional experience placement in a Primary school setting. This subject is undertaken in two consecutive parts (EDU4REA(15cp) & EDU4RE2B(15cp)).
