|Subject Overview:||This subject prepares teacher candidates for the teaching of secondary school physics, especially VCE Physics Units 2 and 4. Pedagogical methods and learning and teaching approaches appropriate to physics are covered. These include the use of classroom instruction, practical laboratory work, and the use of Information and Communication Technology. The subject also explores assessment of physics. In addition, some coverage is devoted to physics as outlined in the Victorian Essential Learning Standards for years 7-10, the International Baccalaureate curriculum, and specific areas of the VCE course unlikely to be familiar to teacher candidates. In combined science, shared with the other science methods, teacher candidates will employ in practice research on children’s naïve conceptions in different Years 7 – 10 science topics, and develop skills in managing communication in peer based learning. Workshops and excursions will strengthen particular content areas. School visits will introduce models of department management and associated career options.|
