Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit extends the theory and methods for teaching primary science and technology covered in ESH250 through the targeted study of assessment and planning strategies for the development of students' scientific literacy. Current theories of teaching, learning, planning and assessment in science are studied in light of the new Australian curriculum, and in alignment with the Early Years Learning Framework.
Extensive use is made of current literature and resources to link theory and practice and to build students' pedagogical content knowledge and confidence in adopting assessment practises for various purposes and in planning to maximise learning opportunities towards the development of scientific literacy.
