In Professional Practice 3 (Catholic School Placement), you will prepare for and complete an assessable professional experience placement in a Catholic school as a required component of your acceptance into the Catholic Education strand of your course. You will participate in tutorials, practical workshops and your school placement which comprises a four week continuous block. Your learning in this unit is designed around two integrated modules. In the first module, you will enhance your ability to design, adapt, implement and assess teaching sequences that cater for the diverse needs of learners in mainstream classrooms. You will develop knowledge of the purposes of using assessment for learning and practices for interpreting student data that inform differentiation practices. In addition, you will learn and apply teaching practices for setting learning goals, modifying lessons plans and learning sequences, adapting pedagogical approaches and using feedback techniques that are responsive to students’ learning needs. In the second module of this unit, you will build your knowledge and understanding of the particular strategies, rituals, traditions and resources that characterise the Christian belief practices of Catholic school communities. You will use this knowledge to reflect on the responsibilities of teachers within the Catholic schooling system and the nature of partnerships with parents / carers and the school community in supporting engagement and participation in the important personal and communal faith rituals of the Catholic tradition.
