Synopsis

This course will enable pre-service educators to develop competence in engaging early adolescents with purposeful learning. It will assist those enrolled to develop an understanding of factors which impact on adolescent learning including physical and emotional development, relationships and school or sector transitions. These factors will then be further explored within a school context as students complete a school based case study and propose classroom and whole school strategies to enhance student engagement, success, resilience, partnerships, tolerance and emotional wellbeing.
