It further challenges the pre-service teacher to question what they think they know, as well as discover what they need to know. A range of practical and relevant exercises and activities assist in building habits of reflexive practice.Key features: Features lots of interesting and readily applicable activities and questions that invite students to practice what they’ve learned and to record it in their journals or portfolios Approaches literacy across the KLAs, and consistent with National Curriculum emphases in literature.
