EDUP2031: Building English Education

The second English unit builds across all areas of the foundational unit. By examining different approaches to literacy, current policies and global issues, the unit will challenge pre-service teachers to develop a rich, creative and critical philosophy towards the teaching of English and literacy. Exploring more deeply the theory underpinning literacy approaches, students will teach, practise and appraise reading and writing approaches, developing pedagogical and metalinguistic knowledge as part of the process. Content includes cross curriculum texts, needs of diverse learners, knowledge about multimodal, digital and media texts, assessment, planning and building professional learning.
