Prerequisites EDSS522 Humanities Curriculum and Teaching 1
This unit is designed for preservice teachers to develop an understanding of the way in which subjects within the Study of Society and Environment (SOSE) area of national and state curricula are taught and studied in Years 11 and 12. The relevant curricula and the units which comprise the different subjects are introduced to the preservice teachers. Methods for developing courses with appropriate learning activities, including the use of information technologies, to enable students to develop knowledge and skills identified in the outcome statements in the curricula are explored. Attention is given to assessment and reporting. The different assessment priorities for different levels of programs and courses are examined and practice is undertaken in the selection of appropriate assessment tasks and relevant correction processes.
