EUB109 English, Literacies and Language 1

Unit synopsis

This unit develops your knowledge, skills and application of teaching English curriculum, language and literacy to young children, from birth to year 6. This unit focuses on the theories of teaching English, literacy and language acquisition, and develops understandings about effective use of children's literature in literacy teaching in prior-to-school and primary school settings. You will explore early years literacy teaching and learning, including play based pedagogies with particular focus on birth to Year 3. You will engage with the Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Guideline and The Australian Curriculum, to understand the ways children and teachers build knowledge and skills with language and literacy as they transition from prior-to-school to formal school contexts.   The unit also prepares you in learning how to annotate evidence of practice, which will be needed for the Teaching Performance Assessment in your final semester.
