About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit is designed to prepare students for their role as active, thoughtful leaders of learning environments for primary students. Students will come to an understanding of their trajectory as professional learners as they develop a deeper understanding of who they are as teachers. The portfolio that they begin in this unit will be a vehicle for them to reflect deeply on their emerging skills and understandings and will be part of their development of a critical perspective of their practice as a teacher. Building on previous understanding about how children learn the students will plan lesson sequences using a range of teaching strategies. The unit will familiarise students with the processes needed to implement the mandated national and state curriculums in their unique classrooms with the diversity of students with whom they are working. A study of techniques to create safe and well managed learning environments where school students feel a sense of ownership of their learning will aid successful completion of the associated practicum unit. The practice of continuous assessment, planning, implementation and reflection that is the curriculum cycle will provide an organising principle around which the understandings gained in the curriculum units can be built.
