This unit provides you with in-depth theoretical knowledge about the nature, structure and development of language from a functional approach and its relations to language and literacy education. It is built on the foundational concepts in the first two core English units, ESH110 and ESH210, and has a strong focus on the Language and Literacy strands of the Australian Curriculum: English. You will have the opportunity to extend your knowledge of spelling, and to enhance your creative writing and lesson planning skills. You will also be required to develop classroom resources for the teaching and learning of spelling and writing.
