English Literacy and Mathematics Education 1

15 points



The course provides pre-service teachers with an introduction to English and Mathematics Education, key Learning Areas of the New Zealand Curriculum (2007). The development of literacy and numeracy skills is essential as a basis for all subject knowledge and teachers must have the knowledge and skills to design effective learning experiences in these areas. They must be able to critically evaluate current English literacy and Mathematics practice across all levels of primary education. Every teacher requires the skills and knowledge to make it possible for children to understand, clarify, problem solve, test hypotheses and communicate in appropriate ways. The course will complement learning in other courses in the Graduate Diploma of Teaching and Learning (Primary), including Professional Practice.
