Design for learning: Design learning based on curriculum and pedagogical knowledge, assessment information and an understanding of each learner’s strengths, interests, needs, identities, languages and cultures.My professional inquiry for the year is:
Select teaching approaches, resources, and learning and assessment activities based on a thorough knowledge of curriculum content, pedagogy, progressions in learning and the learners.
I have recently read lots of books to get my head around the assessment that is required in the first few years of school. Under the Mutukaroa framework - assessments should be completed on arrival to school (5 years), then again at 5.5 years, 6 years and 7 years. Over the holidays I delved into a few books and Youtube videos to help me prepare for these assessments in the new year. I read "An Observation survey of Early Literacy achievement" and "Effective Literacy Practice".
