This subject advances pre-service teachers' knowledge of theories of development and learning. Pre-service teachers apply their knowledge of learning to the period of adolescence. The major domains of physical, cognitive and socio-emotional development are used to introduce issues pertaining to puberty, intelligence, the adolescent self and identity. Contemporary socio-cultural factors that influence adolescent development are considered, as well as the need and importance to effectively engage with parents/carers. In addition, pre-service teachers explore factors related to academic achievement in high school, high-incidence disorders of adolescence, motivation and conduct research with adolescents. Implications for learning, especially the use of evidence-based learning strategies, are stressed.
