For this assessment task you will need to use the Early Years Learning Framework Planning Cycle (AGDE, 2022, pp.25-28) to create pedagogical documentation that makes literacy and numeracy learning and teaching visible.
Pedagogical documentation requires you to use vocabulary that describes children's and educators' thinking and finds ways to make that thinking visible. It is a means of analysing what lies beneath the play experiences to find the questions being asked and the learning that occurs. It is a tool for teachers to gather information to create meaning.
Evaluate the literacy and numeracy learning and teaching in the video provided in canvas. Ensure your documentation demonstrates your assessment of, as and for children's learning (AGDE. 2022).
Pedagogically document the videos provided in canvas. Ensure to acknowledge, document, and describe your attunement to children's dispositions, curiosity, discoveries, theories, perspectives, knowledge skills, involvement in learning and contributions to their own learning and the learning of others in relation to literacy and numeracy (AGDE, 2022).
Analyse and interpret the literacy and numeracy learnin4 and engagement that has occurred for the children. Ensure to acknowledge early childhood theories to clearly identify children's strengths and capacities and consider these in relation to the Learning Outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework (AGDE, 2022, pp.31-63).
Assess and interpret the literacy and numeracy pedagogical knowledge and teaching strategies the educators have demonstrated and engage in. Ensure to acknowledge curriculum approaches, continuums of teaching (ECUR207) and theories to identify the strengths and capacities and consider these in relation to the educators promote this learning examples in the Learning Outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework (AGDE. 2022, pp.31-63)
Use your thoughtful analysis of the information collected and your documentation as inspiration to plan and document a further three (3) engaging play-based literacy and numeracy curriculum provisions for the children. Ensure these experiences consolidate, enrich, and extend children's learning and thinking in literacy and numeracy (ADGE, 2022). Across the three (3) engaging play-based investigations ensure that all the following curriculum areas are addressed:
You are to set up and enact each of your planned curriculum provisions. Take photos and/or videos of learning environments/spaces/resources and record yourself delivering your planned learning opportunities (you are not required to implement these to a group of children, rather simulate/imagine you are delivering to children).
Create documentation of this implementation using a digital presentation format.
