General Information


In this unit, you will focus on the implementation and application of the relevant junior secondary curriculum during a 15 day block placement in a secondary school. Through the design of effective teaching and learning, which uses appropriate content knowledge and teaching strategies, you will demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of your curriculum areas. You will apply this understanding of the curriculum framework to your teaching practices. During this professional experience placement, you will take an active role in self-evaluation processes and actively seek constructive feedback to improve your practice. Furthermore, you will be required to respond to identified learning needs to improve student learning outcomes. You will use the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate Career Stage) as the basis for monitoring and documenting your professional learning and practice, in addition to setting your own professional learning goals. This effective application of curriculum will be demonstrated as you select and evaluate evidence of your practice in the professional e-portfolio.
