|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject introduces teacher candidates to the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) strand, Physical, Personal and Social Learning and emphasises the role that health education plays in equipping secondary students with the knowledge and skills to take ownership of their personal health and wellbeing.
Teacher candidates will critically examine how definitions of ‘health’ are influenced by personal values and experiences, the media, public policy and school policies. They will explore the role of the teacher in helping school students to develop critical literacy around issues pertaining to their health and wellbeing and discuss the ways in which a socially just health curriculum functions as a tool for public health promotion.
Teacher candidates will be introduced to subject-specific requirements around programming, assessment and classroom management. They will also create a variety of teaching and learning resources including unit and lesson plans, assessment tasks and various health promotional teaching tools.
