This unit aims to develop an in-depth understanding of the context of LOTE teaching and learning in Victoria and in Australia, with a view to critically evaluating and reflecting on the history of the discipline, the contemporary policy context, and the relevant state and national curricula for languages. In this unit, students explore language acquisition theory and its implications for language teaching, and a wide range of language teaching methodologies. Students will investigate different strategies for teaching, assessment and evaluation, and implement these in the development of units and programs for primary and or secondary education contexts. This unit also enables pre-service teachers to develop a deeper understanding of the relevant professional standards, and to critically examine the professional role and identity of the language teacher.
