This unit examines strategies and resources used to assist teachers to develop their own understandings of key aspects of literacy teaching and learning. Participants research their own and their colleagues’ literacy education practices, engaging with readings; identifying an issue to be addressed at a school or other workplace; developing and implementing a project which addresses this issue; and reflecting and reporting on project implementation.
The issue in contemporary literacy education is identified by the participant as having relevance in a local context and is developed in negotiation with lecturers. Participants are supported through a range of readings and resources. Professional learning methods such as modelling and demonstrating teaching approaches, working in teams, mentoring, presenting to groups, and encouraging reflective practice and practitioner research are considered. Whole school characteristics that are associated with successful literacy policies and programs are addressed. Participants can also undertake the trimester 2 unit EEL702 New and traditional literacies and diverse student needs for further inquiry into literacy education.
There are 2 pieces of assessment for this unit:
