Brief Description

The module will continue to develop the subject knowledge and understanding that underpins the teaching of English.  The module aims to extend and deepen students’ ability to teach English and will focus on statutory and non-statutory requirements and documentation. Speaking and listening activities will underpin learning and teaching and students will build on the understanding gained in relation to developing early reading and writing across all phases.  They will use their knowledge to plan for, teach and assess children's learning in English.  Students will be able to critically evaluate the range of teaching and learning approaches that characterise successful teaching in English, identifying where the use of ICT can enhance, enrich and enable learning.
