TESOL (A) Special Course (EDUP4068)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit builds on work completed in EDUP3003 and is based around teaching principles derived from current sociocultural theory: callenge, engagement, assisted performance and handover. The course will assist students to make decisions about appropriate group/classrooom strategies across the curriculum in the broad areas of speaking, listening, reading/viewing and writing. The UOS will include a substantial focus on grammar and how to use grammatical knowledge to both design effective lessons and assess students' strengths and areas of need. There will also be a component in this UOS that looks specifically at the needs of the children of refugee parents.
