Unit rationale, description and aim

This is the first unit in a Religious Education Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment sequence. The pre-service teacher will critically reflect on their approach to teaching and learning with a focus on specific professional practices related to teaching and learning in the specific discipline area.

This unit is designed to establish a knowledge base for pre-service teachers in the areas of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment in Catholic Religious Education for secondary students in the junior years of secondary schooling (Years 7-10). The unit is also designed to develop pre-service teachers’ understanding of contemporary theory, concepts and skills in Religious Education as applied in the classroom context. Theoretical concepts, pedagogical principles and curriculum structures within Religious Education are examined and applied in the evaluation, design and implementation of learning experiences that are responsive to the needs of diverse learners.

The aim of EDRE527 is to introduce students to the discipline of religious education for the junior secondary school context and to develop their knowledge and skills for planning related curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
