EDX2170 English Curriculum and Pedagogy

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Teacher Education and Early Childhood


This course examines current theories and issues in literacy education. There will be a focus on curriculum and pedagogy for literacies learning, and the English curriculum in particular, by studying a variety of approaches to the teaching of reading and writing and use of children's literature to develop a flexible repertoire of practices for planning for a balanced approach. This will contribute to the development of a literacies pedagogy for new times, which will necessarily reflect current research and recent initiatives in literacies education. NOTE: Minimum enrolment numbers apply to this offering. Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the ONLINE offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
