Teaching practice I - TPS2601

Under Graduate Degree Year module NQF level: 6 Credits: 12
Module presented in English
Purpose: The purpose of the module is to support students in their initial teaching experiences - "the micro-contexts of everyday life in classrooms" (Cohen, Manion, Morrison and Wyse, 2010: 1) and proceeds from the understanding that education is context-specific and context-dependent. The focus of this module is guided observation, helping students to observe practice and make connections between what they have learned, what they have observed and what they have experienced. They may become involved in assisting the teacher under instruction. The placement will require 5 weeks in a school and there will be an "orientation to school teaching" approach SP & FET students will focus on observation in their two specialist areas (3 subjects). Services learning (community) activities will also take place.
