Unit of study_

English: Becoming Literate - EDUP3006

Year - 2020

In this unit students will continue to reflect on their theoretical knowledge of the principles of English teaching. They will critique key readings to challenge, make links to their own practices and to question past and current practice. Students will examine literacy assessment tools, identify the literacy demands of factual and multimodal texts and plan lessons to encourage pupil engagement through explicit teaching in stages two and three. As a result of working in this unit, students should be prepared to justify their own approach to teaching English and literacy across the curriculum areas in the primary classroom.
