There are no set texts for this course. Weekly readings will be provided via the UC Library Readings List, which will be available through the CANVAS course.
Workshop time will be highly collaborative and interactive.
Inclusion and engagement
While the unit convener is advised of special needs in the student cohort, it is also advisable to make personal contact with the convener to advise of particular requirements.
Students will be required to collaboratively plan a unit in a small (pair or group of 3) team for Assessment 3. While some time is provided in-class for this, as an assessment item, additional personal time and coordination with peers is expected and will need to be factored in for Assessment 3. Collaborative planning reflects the nature of curriculum planning in school environments.
