Becoming an Intentional Teacher

15 points



This course introduces pre-service teachers to contemporary thinking related to intentional teaching in early childhood settings in bicultural Aotearoa New Zealand. Pre-service teachers will engage with theoretical and practical frameworks for responsive teaching that take account of the diverse backgrounds of tamariki and whanau and draw on local contexts. As a part of a wider progression in curriculum design, there will be a focus on the application of the processes of noticing and recognising children’s interests and learning.
