Synopsis

This is the final in a suite of three English courses undertaken by all primary pre-service teachers. Through the application of a Multiliteracies Pedagogy, pre-service teachers develop an understanding of the macro and micro-elements of English curriculum planning, assessment and pedagogical approaches for upper primary learners. The further application of the Four Resources Model emphasises text analysis and genre-based approaches to the transformation of texts and learners in the English classroom.
