In this Module Plus you will observe a child’s code-related literacy and plan a lesson that will extend their learning and build new skills or knowledge. The child could be one of your students, your own child or a child you know who is aged between 2 and 9 years of age. It is also possible to negotiate a hypothetical scenario if you do not currently have access to a child in this age group. You will document your observations, lesson and reflective summary to complete the assessment.
