In Professional Practice 2, you will extend your professional knowledge and skills through tutorials, workshops and a school placement comprising a 20-day (4 week) block placement at the end of the term. You will participate in tutorials to build both theoretical and practical knowledge of the strategies teachers use to create positive, organised classroom environments that support wellbeing, engagement and learning. You will analyse the impact of different approaches to classroom management on student learning and apply your understanding of motivation, relationship-building and engagement to plan proactively for the safety, support, inclusion and self-regulation of all learners during the school placement. You will also apply knowledge gained from curriculum courses you have studied to plan, implement and evaluate lesson sequences that incorporate a range of teaching strategies and resources with a particular focus on literacy, numeracy and the use of ICTs to improve student outcomes. You will monitor your professional learning through critical reflection, and will select and evaluate evidence to add to your ePortfolio that demonstrates selected focus areas of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
