This unit furthers students' knowledge of childrens language and literacy development, the importance of childrens literature, and use of critical and multi-literacies across the curriculum. Students will have opportunities to explore, design, use and evaluate different ways to deal with children including Indigenous and EAL/D (English as an additional language or dialect) learners, with specific language and literacy needs. Students will also examine and develop literacy programming alternatives for different student groups and school-based settings.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Understand the role and value of language and literacy across the curriculum, ICT use, and of childrens literature and multi-literacies in prior-to school and school (K-6) contexts;
2. Grasp the ways to deal with specific language and literacy needs of all learners, including those from Indigenous backgrounds or who have EAL/D (English as an additional language or dialect);
3. Demonstrate the ability to examine, evaluate and develop different types of unit plans for student groups from prior-to-school and school-based settings; and
4. Communicate, interpersonal and organisation skills.
