The focus of this course is to provide experiences that lead pre-service teachers (PSTs) to develop resources and skills that will allow them to deliver effective and engaging literacy and numeracy curriculum that is in line with current theories of teaching and learning. PSTs will develop their skills in literacy and numeracy teaching strategies and the application of these strategies in their chosen school context. PSTs will develop skills in interpreting literacy and numeracy curriculum, academic and personal communication, self-reflection, personal learning, and delivering and responding to peer feedback. They will engage in literature for children and adolescents as a necessary component of reading and writing processes and explore the components of language (grammar, phonics, spelling, vocabulary), literacy (speaking, listening, writing, reading and viewing), understandings of genre; and ways these are used to develop engaging integrated learning experiences including numeracy. Students will explore the numeracy topics of fractions, decimals, percentages and measurement as part of their study.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
