This unit will provide opportunities for pre-service teachers to examine the purpose and nature of science teaching and learning.

There will be a focus on pre-service teachers exploring and investigating the literacies of science, and pedagogies associated with effective teaching.  Pre-service teachers will inquire into classroom practice to critically reflect upon current science teaching practices.
