This is the fourth of six compulsory Education Studies units in the Bachelor of Education (Primary). The purpose of this unit is to develop knowledge and understanding of the role of curriculum, assessment and reporting in realising the purposes and possibilities of schooling. This requires a thorough understanding of the processes of curriculum design, development, implementation and assessment and reporting and a critical awareness of the creative role of curriculum and assessment in empowering schools to respond to social change. The internationalisation of curriculum and a range of varying curriculum models will be also explored.
In preparation for school experience students will explore models of weekly, unit, and trimester program schemers. The sharing of other models used in school settings will be included in the debriefing after placement. Debriefing will also include discussion of other problematic issues raised by students.
