Professional Practices 1 (KCDE2201)
UNIT OF STUDY
This subject is designed to focus on student skills as emerging teachers and in particular, develop and refine skills in reflection and communication. Preservice teachers will develop an understanding of issues for students from low socio-economic backgrounds and the impact of this on the students, their teachers and schools. The development of teaching strategies in literacy and numeracy will also be a focus including practical skill sessions. In preparation for the Professional Experience which is a component of this course, students will discuss classroom management techniques, planning and preparing to teach using standard lesson templates, and ethical practice including the NSW Department of Education and Communities Code of Conduct and Child Protection policies. The National Professional Standards for Teachers will also be discussed in relation to the requirements of this Professional Experience.
