Lowien, Nathan ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-8907-2198 (2022) Teaching the Australian Curriculum English: Pre-service teachers’ knowledge and confidence in the middle primary years. Literacy Learning: the Middle Years, 30 (1). pp. 52-64. ISSN 1320-5692


Abstract

Pre-service teachers must learn to traverse the difficult terrain of English pedagogical approaches. They require knowledge and know-how practices to successfully navigate and conquer the mountains and plateaus of the Australian Curriculum: English. This paper reports on a survey of pre-service teachers’ perceptions of their knowledge and confidence with teaching the English curriculum. The study found that pre-service teachers are developing the capacity to implement the curriculum, but they self-report a wide range of confidence levels. There is a need for further research in this area.
