This module aims to equip students with the necessary communicative and classroom literacies to succeed as a professional in the domain of teaching. Students will show evidence of understanding and being able to implement the theories and strategies underpinning spoken and written communication required within an education context. The development of a critical awareness of language as a non-neutral (biased) conveyor of meaning will also be fostered. An overview of the linguistic diversity encountered in most South African classrooms provides the prospective teacher with strategies for dealing more effectively with multilingualism in a culturally diverse pedagogical context. Students will also acquire instructional skills and a functional knowledge of Classroom English i.e. oral skills required for facilitating learning and classroom management.
