Description

This course provides a foundation for critical engagement with curriculum, pedagogy and assessment issues for secondary teaching in complex and shifting secondary schooling environments. Students examine curriculum and assessment frameworks, including the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) and the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA), different schooling contexts, contemporary pedagogical developments and associated practice challenges. They engage with questions about knowledge and whose knowledge counts in secondary education. There is a particular focus on integrated curriculum, pedagogies that support learning across subjects, assessment for learning, culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogy, literacies across the curriculum, future-focused and personalised learning, and integrated design for learning. Students collaborate with peers to explore integrated teaching and learning opportunities.

Learning Outcomes

On the successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Apply understanding of curriculum, literacies and pedagogies that support learning for Māori and diverse learners to the collaborative design of an integrated curriculum project.
2. Explain teacher decision-making in the collaborative design of an integrated curriculum project.
3. Identify and adapt pedagogical materials to develop a formative assessment task.
4. Analyse ākonga assessment results, with a focus on achievement of Māori and diverse learners, and draw implications for teaching practice to support ākonga achievement.
