Teaching Language use in Context builds pre-service teachers’ knowledge of the rationale, organisation and content of the Australian Curriculum: English and the interrelatedness of the Language, Literature and Literacy strands. The unit has a particular focus on the productive modes of writing and constructing texts. Students investigate the relationship between the features of texts and the social and cultural contexts in which they are used and apply knowledge of pedagogical frameworks including the teaching-learning model and multiliteracies framework to the development of assessment, teaching resources and learning sequences that scaffold learners’ ability to construct texts using multiple semiotic modes.
