In this course Leonie will walk you through the Professional Knowledge domain of the Professional Standards for Teachers and give some excellent examples of evidence that can be collected for accreditation purposes.
Teachers draw on a body of professional knowledge and research to respond to the needs of their students within their educational contexts.
Teachers know their students well, including their diverse linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds. They know how the experiences that students bring to their classroom affect their continued learning. They know how to structure their lessons to meet the physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of their students.
Teachers know the content of their subjects and curriculum. They know and understand the fundamental concepts, structure and enquiry processes relevant to the programs they teach. Teachers understand what constitutes effective, developmentally appropriate strategies in their learning and teaching programs and use this knowledge to make the content meaningful to students.
Through their teaching practice, teachers develop students’ literacy and numeracy within their subject areas. They are also able to use information and communication technology to contextualise and expand their students’ modes and breadth of learning.
