This course and fourth teaching practice experience provides opportunities for Primary pre-service teachers to refine their learning and reflection on teaching and demonstrate professional skills, knowledge and dispositions. Mana ako is a way of describing how, through a process of exploration on teaching practice, pre-service teachers learn how to teach. During this process of self-discovery and understanding of their own developing teacher identity, pre-service teachers develop skills of collaboration, problem-solving, perseverance, curiosity and confidence. Practice experience is particularly focused on designing learning, including teaching and assessment, of mathematics and literacy within the Primary school programme. Pre-service teachers will be expected to respond to learners, establish a learning-focused culture, foster professional relationships, enact principles relating to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and engage in professional learning. The course and teaching practice experience is closely linked to other courses in the BTchLn programme.
