This is the second unit of the professional studies strand. The unit will involve in-depth and contextualised discussion of the ways learners are ‘known’ in classrooms. Students will adopt a range of ways of seeing learners from the theoretical literature from this unit and critique notions of equity and diversity within learning environments. The students will finally critique these revised ways of seeing learners through revisiting the place of their own beliefs and philosophical stance.
This unit includes 10 consecutive days professional experience. During these days the pre-service teacher will:
Learner Community Portraiture, 1000 words, 25%
Perspectives of a Learner, 2200 words, 55%
Professional Experience, 20%
This component is assessed primarily by the supervising classroom teacher in consultation with the pre-service teacher. Satisfactory completion of the Professional Experience component is compulsory in order for the student to progress.
