Looking forward
It is now a really good time to check your
module requirements and ensure you are on
track.
Module 1 requirements should be close to
completion by now, reflections should be
continuing and Module 3 should be well
underway or completed. The next step is to get
into those final modules - one compulsory for
secondary teachers and one option for primary.

How do we think about children? Not using
deficit thinking. Having a belief in our priority
learners. As Colleen says "So what?" what are
you, as the teacher, going to do about it.
There is a wealth of excellent resources
available in regards to the curriculum and,
teaching and learning.

Ensuring students are at the centre of the
teaching - learning process, discussing and

Knowing and understanding the overall
requirements of the NZC as well as the
nationally valued outcomes of the students, this
is what's always in my mind that the centre of
the teaching learning will always be the
students. Bearing in mind that the students are
the centre of the teaching-learning, this is where
the pedagogies come in and it will help me
identify what strategies I can use in delivering
the lesson effectively.
