This subject develops students' knowledge and understanding of the English K–10 Syllabus (Vol. 1), its place in the NSW curriculum and relationship with other key learning areas of the curriculum as well as the Australian curriculum. Students are introduced to the major emphases of the syllabus including objectives, outcomes, content, stage statements, general capabilities, cross-curriculum priorities and the processes of composing and responding. They explore the different theoretical perspectives and models for teaching English, for example the personal growth model. Students investigate the role of language and literature in the syllabus and approaches for the English classroom through the development of scope and sequence documents, units of work and individual classroom lessons by integrating strategies using the language modes of listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing. Students identify and evaluate relevant digital programs, applications and tools for the English classroom, undertake basic assessment of sample student scripts on the Assessment Resource Centre and are introduced to the NSW Quality Teaching Framework and the English Textual Concepts approach. They also explore aspects and emphases of the Stage 6 English Syllabus as an introduction to senior English in NSW.
