This course has three connected components: the content areas associated with four of the learning areas associated with the curriculum documents, the pedagogical approach of inquiry for learning and an integrated curriculum design. The four learning areas associated with this course are: Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE), History, The Arts, and Languages. Students will be required to develop short term learning plans which demonstrate knowledge of appropriate curriculum documents and the integration of knowledge and skills across learning areas utilising a pedagogy based on inquiry. These plans will need to demonstrate how assessment for and of learning are integrated into the design and proposed delivery of these learning episodes. The course provides for 15 days of professional attachment to an identified school.
