This unit is designed to provide a comprehensive account of the teaching of spoken, written and multimodal texts in the primary years of schooling.
You will gain an understanding of different theories related to producing texts in a range of modes for different purposes. Likewise you will investigate a range of written and multimodal genres, their textual structures and grammar and learn to apply these in planning and teaching in mainstream, English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contexts, gaining a critical awareness of varying pedagogic approaches.
You will also develop skills in pedagogy and practice, including next practice, within English & Literacy for K-6 students. The knowledge and skills developed in the other units of study in the course can be applied in this unit and Professional Practice units.
