Unit Description

This unit is typically completed in the same semester as PR732.300 Professional Practice: Teaching Secondary (30 days). The unit focuses on developing a reflective practice in order to improve classroom practices, and introduces the concept and processes of action research in the classroom. The unit covers aspects of students’ learning behaviours and needs that pre-service teachers may observe in secondary school classroom contexts. The unit covers how to identify needs and plan practices in response to needs, how to collect and analyse data to monitor impact, and plan improvements to practices in order to improve outcomes. During the final professional practice pre-service teachers will implement this process in response to observed learning behaviours and needs exhibited in one of their placement classes.
