The subject aims to challenge students' thinking and understanding of crucial aspects of the work of the teacher in the primary school, and develop skills in applying current practices, grounded in a critical awareness of recent literature in the field. To this end, this subject engages students in the completion of two modules. Module One focuses on the Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA). The TPA requires students to plan, teach, assess and evaluate the outcomes of a formal, whole-class assessment task during their internship placement. Module Two focuses on the NSW Quality Teaching Framework which is a pedagogical practices framework for professional dialogue to improve students' academic and social outcomes.
