Pre-service teachers will develop their understanding of pedagogy and teaching practice in relation to the Australian Curriculum and relevant local curricula. Topics include how language and texts are shaped by their purpose, the audiences for whom they are intended and the contexts in which they are created and received. This unit will build on subject knowledge gained through specialist disciplinary studies and translate it into pedagogy and practice required to teach English in the senior years of schooling. The unit will develop pre-service teachers' skills to think critically and creatively through application to discussion, critique, evaluation and design.
