This unit provides a context for the student to explore the relationship between documentation, planning and assessment for learning with children aged 3 - 12 years. It builds on the students' existing experience and knowledge of young children to support the development of responsive and respectful pedagogies that respect the child as an individual and support children as confident and involved learners. The unit will critique contemporary theoretical perspectives and curriculum approaches influencing early childhood pedagogy and practice both in Australia and globally, with a focus on child-centred practice as a context for learning. Students will continue to construct understandings about developing effective relationships and successful teaching interactions with children. They will also continue to develop teaching practices that promote children’s inquiry, thinking and problem-solving skills to become confident and competent learners within their own cultural contexts, and develop their capacity to design and assess dynamic and challenging learning environments for both individual and groups to achieve optimum learning outcomes.
