About this Unit
This unit provides students with a professional experience in a primary school, building on their prior experience in early childhood and community-based settings. The professional experience component of this unit consists of 30 days in a 10 + 20 day combination. This can be taken as EITHER 10 days in a Year K-2 classroom and 20 days in a Year 3-6 classroom, OR 10 days in a Year 3-6 classroom and 20 days in a Year K-2 classroom.. Students will link theory and practice while exploring issues involved in understanding the needs of learners within specific school and classroom contexts. Students will design and teach experiences, lessons and units of work in ways that enhance student engagement and learning outcomes, and make relevant links with NSW Education Standards Authority syllabus documents that align with the Australian Curriculum. This professional experience unit supports students to meet the Australian Professional Standards for graduate teachers by focusing on developing professional knowledge, practice and engagement in the primary school context. The unit also gives students opportunities to reflect on their own teaching and learning, and to develop professional goals.
