Aims and objectives

This unit advances pre-service teachers’ readiness for teaching their two discipline areas in secondary school contexts. They undertake guided and independent investigations to advance their knowledge and skills in planning, teaching and assessment. They examine purposeful ways to include the general capabilities, cross curriculum priorities, numeracy, literacy and ICT in their subject areas. Pre-service teachers further evaluate contemporary approaches to secondary teaching and learning that support the inclusion of diverse students across a range of abilities.

Students who successfully complete this unit will able to:
1. Analyse and integrate subject expertise and particular pedagogical approaches of the discipline areas to engage students in learning.
2. Design an effective unit of work for each discipline area, drawing on a variety of resources, relevant curricula, general capabilities and cross curriculum priorities.
3. Develop an assessment plan within each scope and sequence that includes informal and formal, diagnostic, formative and summative approaches.
4. Design differentiated learning and modified teaching pathways that take into account assessment data as well as the specific learning needs of students across the full range of abilities
5. Critically evaluate curriculum and pedagogy approaches into how students learn in secondary contexts, including the intellectual, physical, and social development of diverse learners
