This unit is a capstone expereince 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 secondary contexts.  Students will select key teaching, learning and assessment artefacts and build their professional portfolio to evidence performances against student 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 secondary setting.
