Kia ora and welcome to Collection 6
If you’re reading this then you are up to Assessment 6 in the new and improved NZCALNE (Voc).
Good work…! This next part is heart of the programme. The focus is on planning and teaching embedded literacy and numeracy as part of what you do.
If you do stop by the blog, we always like it if you leave the odd comment. This is a useful way of telling us what’s useful and what’s not, especially while this material is in draft form.
We’ve taken the best parts of the teaching practice part from the old qualification and beefed them up for this new qualification. This work is now worth a bunch more credits overall, which is the way we think it should be.
The focus here is on doing the teaching. Everything that you’ve thought about, brainstormed and worked on to date, should inform your planning and teaching here.
There are three sections in Collection 6:
6.2 Just do it: Teaching
6.3 Supporting evidence
You already know most of what you need to know, to go and do this work. Probably, you’re already doing it.
If you find that you already know what you’re doing for a particular part of this collection, then feel free to skip ahead to the next relevant section.
Or start with the assessment template and dip into this material as you need to. Email us if you don’t already have the template and checklist.
