Content

This unit will increase students’ understandings about the potential for children’s learning when teachers develop partnerships with families and communities. Students will examine theoretical perspectives of partnership and investigate how partnerships can be developed. Models of partnership will be deconstructed and critically analysed to develop students’ understandings of the role of the teacher in leading collaborative relationships. The students will develop their own understandings of the communication, cultural competencies and leadership skills they can apply to form partnerships. This will incorporate critical self-reflection to explore their own values and beliefs about teaching and learning.
