Description From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. All students seeking a second secondary teaching area qualification must complete this Years 7-10 teaching methodology unit. The unit will examine and model effective contemporary classroom practice to develop students' pedagogical content knowledge. The specifics of the relevant NSW Education Standards Authority: Years 7-10: Syllabus and links with the K-6 curriculum will be analysed and critiqued as will current Australian and NSW educational/curriculum policies and priorities. Emphasis will be placed on principles underlying engaged inquiry teaching within the specific secondary subject, on creativity and quality teaching outcomes, on innovative course, unit and lesson planning and on the role of data in authentic and appropriate assessment practices. Opportunities for investigation and discussion of current research particularly related to sustainability and diversity in the teaching of the specific subject area will be important.
