Subject Overview:

This subject will explore teaching techniques and their adaptation to different abilities and learning styles; and a range of learning outcomes in preschool settings. It will develop linkages with teaching and professional practice and build on the understandings developed in previous subjects. There will be a strong emphasis on reflective practice. A key focus of this subject will be to examine how beliefs, attitudes and values contribute to the development of a professional philosophy and underpin personal practical knowledge. Content will draw on a range of early childhood curriculum approaches and models (eg. High scope, Head Start, Te Whariki and Reggio Emilia) to explore and identify principles and strategies for planning, implementing and evaluating developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum.
