Students will increase their content and pedagogical knowledge of the subject as well as develop their professional skills through the practical tasks this Unit provides. Students will explore ways that primary teachers can apply cross- curriculum content and perspectives in HSIE to address literacy and numeracy outcomes. This Unit is designed to develop students' professional skills as they collaboratively plan inquiry -based teaching and learning materials and as well as reflect critically on their own practice.
