Program of approximately 20 days duration or equivalent undertaken in a school or relevant teaching placement. This practicum is normally done out of area (ie. distant from Newcastle).
Student teachers should demonstrate:
1. An understanding of the classroom role of the teacher in the context of school, system and society;
2. Lesson planning and effective teaching skills, classroom management skills, contextually appropriate teaching strategies and human relation and interpersonal skills;
3. The ability to plan a series of learning activities cognisant of learners' backgrounds and needs, of subject demands and policies, and of specific contextual conditions; and
4. An understanding of teachers' work by working effectively as a member of a school team.
The subject requires the equivalent of 20 days school based or relevant teaching experience with components of teaching, observation and reflections. The major emphasis is on progressive planning, teaching, and management skills as the student teachers take greater responsibility in their professional experience placement.
