About this Unit
In 2016 this unit replaced by 102091 Secondary Curriculum 2B. This unit covers teaching methodology for Years 11-12 in students' second teaching area. It must be completed by all students seeking qualification in secondary teaching. This unit seeks to develop in students the capacity to teach effectively the curriculum appropriate to the secondary in their particular chosen second teaching area. Current "best practice" in that specific teaching area will be examined and modelled. The specifics of the relevant Years 11-12 Syllabus in NSW and elsewhere will be examined and critiqued. Emphasis will be placed on the principles which should underlie the teaching of the specific secondary subject at this level and on appropriate objectives and outcomes for the teaching of that subject and on course planning. Opportunities for investigation and discussion of current research into the teaching of the specific subject area will be important.
