Building on this knowledge, students will also explore the four key child-environment identities of the physical child, the social child, the learning child and the natural child and by analysing a variety of scholarly and non-scholarly texts around childhood, children's bodies and behaviour will reflect on a child's individuality and emerging identity.

TEAC 2010  Contemporary Childhoods (WSTC)  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 700289  

In contemporary Australia, care and education provided for young children is both diverse and complex, as a result of a range of historical, philosophical, sociological and political factors. In recent years, traditional understandings of how society views "childhood" and the "universal child" have been challenged by new discourses associated with the reconceptualisation of childhood. From an almost exclusive focus on children as the objects of socialisation, the new sociology of childhood is now interpreting children and the experience of childhood as dynamic, social, multiple and relational. Broadening this sociological gaze has led to new approaches in theorising and conceptualising the study of childhood and the social world of the child. This unit will explore a range of approaches and research about the lives of children in historical and contemporary societies and in local and global settings. Students will investigate the multiplicity and social meaning of childhood; the regulating of children and their bodies, including the role of schools and other social institutions; and the cultural and social world of the child, in particular their agency, rights and exclusion. Beyond this, students in this unit will have a chance to explore the ethics and methodological issues of how research on and with children frames the way professionals work with children.

TEAC 3006  Education in a Cosmopolitan Society  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 101661  

This unit responds to the question of what it might mean to educate "world teachers" for a cosmopolitan age where classrooms and schools are being shaped by the increasing mobility of ideas, people, technology, media and finance. For some time, multicultural education, as policy and practice, has dominated schooling in Australia. While this was an important period in Australia, times have changed. The globalisation of teaching is one dimension of this change as supranational bodies more and more shape what teachers do. Set against these global agendas are the mobilities that teachers must respond to at the local level. This unit examines cosmopolitan social and education theory as a means to understand these dynamics, framing teachers as agents of change.

TEAC 4007  Primary Professional Experience 4b: Transition into the Profession 2  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102660  

This unit is an Internship and as such is an intensive period of in-school experience that will induct students into the nature, structure and organisation of schools and the work, roles and responsibilities of teachers. The internship is a valuable opportunity for further professional learning guided by an experienced mentor teacher. To allow a strong focus on quality of preparation, reflection and deep evaluation, the expectation is that each intern will teach 60 per cent of a full teaching load. Interns do not have to be supervised in the same way as a Pre-Service Teacher on previous professional experience units. Interns may be left unsupervised to take responsibility for groups of students. It is expected that Principals and Mentor Teachers will assign duties and responsibilities to Interns at a level appropriate for an early career teacher. The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requires all Pre-Service Teachers entering an internship to have been assessed within the preceding supervised Professional Experience as achieving all the requirements of the Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers. As such the internship provides not only an opportunity for consolidation of these standards but also preparation towards standards appropriate for full accreditation at Professional Competence level in early teaching years.

TEAC 7158  Researching Teaching and Learning  (10 Credit Points)  

This unit builds on the premise that, in contemporary education environments, teachers continue to develop their professional knowledge and practice through their engagement in reflective inquiry. The capacity to read and make sense of research is an important professional attribute for teachers interested in sustainable practices, engaged inquiry learning by adolescents, and diversity, social justice and equity. The unit provides pre-service teachers with a starting point and practical insights into the day-to-day decision making of educators. The content will follow the order and logic that experienced researchers take in order to ensure quality in their research, and also to ensure that it is valid, reliable, ethical, useful and socially responsible. Given the professional skills required by teachers, the unit pays particular attention to the elements involved in action research.
