Professional Experience 3 (MUED4633)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit of study provides the final professional experience for music education students. The program consists of a nine-week teaching block (4 days a week) in a New South Wales secondary school. Students will be required to teach both junior and senior secondary school music classes (Years 7-12) and undertake the daily responsibilities and activities of a music teacher. It is envisaged that in the final weeks of this unit students will be responsible for a music teacher's full day teaching program. This last practice teaching experience enables the student music teacher to put into practice theoretical and practical content of all previous music education courses completed in their four year degree. It provides experiences, through which student teachers further develop an understanding of the ethical and professional requirements of being a teacher, successfully communicate with their students and fellow teaching colleagues and become independent, self-motivated practicing music teachers.
