Synopsis

This is the second in a suite of three English courses undertaken by all primary pre-service teachers. It examines current theories and issues in English and literacies education and the implications for curriculum and pedagogy. By studying a variety of approaches to the teaching of reading and writing and the use of children's literature, pre-service teachers develop a flexible and balanced repertoire of practices. This course addresses the macro and micro-elements of English curriculum planning and emphasises meaning-making through the explicit teaching of reading and writing.
