Content

This unit is a capstone experience where students examine teachers’ work and align these practices to the relevant professional standards. Using the skills of inquiry required by a teacher-researcher−to gather evidence, document, analyse and reflect on practice students will independently investigate and examine the role of the teacher and professional standards in early childhood settings/primary/secondary contexts.

Students will select key teaching, learning and assessment artefacts* and build their professional portfolio to evidence performances against student and child learning and show a focus on assessment. The unit requires critical reflection in and on the professional practice of teaching through critical engagement in teacher-research, professional learning and communication with members of the profession and the wider school community and/or early childhood setting.  *Note Primary and  primary dual strand students will focus specifically on English and Mathematics content areas (sequence of 4-5 lessons in each area) or integration of English and Mathematics across the  curriculum (unit of inquiry - 8 lesson sequence - with substantive English and Mathematics content and assessment).
