About this Unit
The unit will examine and model effective contemporary classroom practice to develop students’ pedagogical content knowledge in the teaching of English. The unit will provide opportunities to engage with English teaching in all textual forms including spoken, written and visual forms to build meaning. The specifics of the relevant NSW Education Standards Authority Years 7-10 Syllabus and links with the K-6 curriculum will be analysed and critiqued as will current Australian and NSW educational/curriculum policies and priorities. Emphasis will be placed on principles underlying English teaching to develop innovative lesson and unit planning, choose relevant and creative texts to create authentic assessment tasks and apply consistent feedback for student learning. Opportunities for investigation and discussion of current research into the teaching of English and different approaches to the study of texts will be important.
