Students will learn and apply inquiry skills to independently locate, analyse, synthesise and evaluate sources of information addressing an issue or topic. Students will develop skills as reflective practitioners through generating implications from their inquiry for their future classroom practice. They will learn to construct a high quality report encompassing current theory, research, policy and practice in English education and lead a seminar presentation to contribute to the learning of their peers in the area of primary English.
