Unit Description

It has become the role of every teacher to take increasing responsibility for the numeracy and literacy development of all students. In this unit students will critically examine the nature and roles of literacies and numeracies throughout the curriculum in order to build up proficient knowledge of these roles and skills. Through critical synthesis they will apply these to develop teaching strategies and assessments that integrate literacy and numeracy learning across a targeted selection of subjects with which students engage.

In class time, students experience a range of teaching and learning strategies, including lecturer input, demonstration and modelling; discussion, pair and group tasks; simulated classroom learning activities; teaching observation and practice; independent reading and reflection. The lecturer scaffolds the reading of research-based texts and students participate in collaborative pair/group tasks to discuss, analyse, and critique key concepts from readings and videos. Based on lecturer input and self-study, students complete in-class tasks to check their learning in relation to key concepts and teaching practices.

Formative feedback

The lecturer will provide formative feedback on students’ comprehension of key concepts and their application in professional practice through a short writing tasks undertaken before census date.
