This module will help you gain an understanding of the Department for Education requirements in relation to the National Curriculum for Modern Languages and help you meet The Teachers’ Standards for Qualified Teacher Status. The module will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence required for you to teach Modern Languages in Key Stage 2 and enable you to understand how it is taught in related phases. The emphasis throughout this module will be on evidence-informed practice; integrating theory, policy and practice; identifying your own personal theories and beliefs, and encouraging reflective, critical approaches to your professional and personal development. There is also an emphasis within the module on developing you as a future subject leader in Modern Languages. The module covers Modern Languages in wider contexts beyond the classroom and it is hoped that you develop a longer-term view on effective teaching of Modern Languages, grounded in theory and practice. Taught sessions will be delivered via lectures, seminars and workshops, on and off campus, including peer teaching, as appropriate.
