This unit introduces preservice teachers to principles and practices of planning for learning in early years settings. They will develop a critical understanding of the legal, policy, and professional contexts in which they will undertake planning, and the reflective and ethical practices that will inform it. They will examine a range of planning models, strategies and examples, and evaluate them against principles of planning. They will use this knowledge to design and evaluate their own learning activities.
