This unit of study begins the exploration of children's language and literacy learning. The unit provides an introduction to professional experience in the primary classroom through exploring K-2 literacy development and teaching practice. The professional experience will focus on pre-service teachers developing subject content knowledge and how to teach it; knowing their students and how they learn and communicating effectively with their students (NSW Institute of Teachers Professional Teaching standards, Elements 1 2 & 4). Students will become familiar with the fundamental components of reading and writing, children's literature, and multimodal texts, supported through observation of teachers and children in classrooms and interaction with small groups of children emerging in literacy.
