    designing, evaluating and critiquing programs of learning for English language and literacy. Theoretical explanations
    for progression in language and literacy learning, and processes of design are examined. It focuses on programming
    at the levels of curriculum, syllabus, and individual units of teaching and learning in a variety of contexts. The subject
    addresses both informal and formal processes and procedures in language assessment, including designing and

    program design with reference to the subject content ( as represented in readings, learning guide, lectures and class
    discussions)
    The second task focuses on assessment, and involves a practical aspect as well as a theoretical discussion. Once
    again you will be expected to connect to the subject content (as represented in readings, learning guide, lectures
    and class discussions)
    Each task has a weighting of 50%.
