This course is designed to prepare students as emerging teachers for their highly complex and emotionally charged role of teacher as classroom manager. Knowledge, understanding and skills in creating quality learning environments based on key theoretical models, current research and application of policies and procedures will be explored and experienced to build a suite of practical applications to support emerging teachers in the classroom. Thorough knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the needs of all students, in particular those from CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) backgrounds and those with specific learning and welfare needs will be contextualised within current data on the gaps in achievement of specific groups and connections made to the significance of quality learning environments and high teacher expectations to bridging these gaps. Issues around student safety including the notion of cultural safety will be articulated into policy and practice by the Preservice teacher as they draw together all elements of the course including their personal reflections to develop thoughtful and innovative approaches to classroom management and discipline.
Available only to students enrolled in the Diploma of Education (Aboriginal)
