Current children's Literature
This is the second of two topics related to the teaching of English and literacy that are studied during this education course. In these interrelated topics social and functional theories of teaching language are explored. The Australian Curriculum: English is made up of three interrelated strands - Language, Literature and Literacy. This topic is designed to provide the knowledge and skills to teach literary genres to primary students, for the purpose of building their language and literacy abilities. In this topic unit plans are created in preparation to teach, deliver and assess English lessons during the final professional experience placement. This topic also provides opportunities to prepare for reflecting on practice in line with the requirements of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) at the Graduate Level. This supports the collection of meaningful ‘artefacts of practice’ as English is taught on final placement.
This topic aims to:
provide unit planning opportunities for teaching a variety of genres aligned with the literature strand of the Australian Curriculum: English
introduce research-based pedagogic practices that account for diverse groups of students
develop knowledge about when and how to use a range of assessment practices that guide teaching and learning and subsequent reporting
encourage an enactment of socially just approaches to teaching English and literacy
create opportunities for planning to undertake critical reflection on practice
provide support for the collection of meaningful ‘artefacts of practice’ aligned with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers
Expected learning outcomes
It is expected that as a result of work in this topic, students will:
recognise and interpret the structures and the Standard/s of the Australian Curriculum: English - and/or other authorised curriculum frameworks - and explain how they align with literature, language and literacy learning in a primary classroom
plan for the ongoing teaching of English and literacy in a primary classroom
propose and employ research-based pedagogic practice/s that cater for diverse student groups
select and describe a range of assessment and reporting strategies, specific to literacy and English learning in a primary classroom
plan for reflection on practice, and describe how this prepares for choosing ‘illustrations of practice’ in relation to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers
