You will generally be given three key pieces of information:
Your EPT127 assessment item 1, part B (Reflective Essay & notes) asks you to:
"Articulate your developing philosophy of how to teach early readers, writers, viewers, creators, speakers and listeners in Foundation* - 2 classrooms in the current era"
Use keywords from your chosen topic and related module readings to research your presentation
|Instruction words||Articulate (discuss, show)|
|Qualifying words & phrases||Foundation* - 2, current era, Prep, Kindergarten|
how to teach
readers, writers, creators, speakers, and listeners
Write down the key concepts from your topic and have a go at brainstorming as many alternative keywords and phrases as possible. Use these keywords and phrases in Primo Search and the Charles Sturt University education databases.
Thinking about your topic in this way forces you to describe your topic in "other words", which will provide you with some useful keyword alternatives as well as help you to cement your understanding of the topic.
Dictionaries and encyclopaedias can help you to find additional keywords and get an overview of the concept.
Oxford Reference Online is a huge repository of subject-specific dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and other reference-type material.
