English (School Subject) Tutoring - My undergraduate degree included, two children and young adult fiction centred units. The first unit specialised in the visual medium of picture books, specifically image in relation to text or lack thereof. The second unit spanned the rich history of children and young adult’s fiction from fairy tales and their contemporary reimagining’s to the young adult’s post-modern aesthetic that blurred the lines between young adult and literary fiction. This allowed me to gain an understanding of how children read, why they read and who they read for. My first English unit in my Masters degree also focussed on image and text exploration. We learnt how to create a running record that highlighted the complexity of how children interpret texts. For example, I observed how texts can be visually understood in congruence with or contrasted by the text, as well as, observing students conceptualising meaning through abstract verbal interactions all learners engage with texts; be it internally or outwardly expressed in a community environment. I believe in letting the student’s voice dictate my pedagogy and see myself as a facilitator of understanding whereby, I scaffold students with the tools to build on this understanding instead of burying them in institutional rhetoric. These units have armed me with an arsenal of varying pedagogical literacy techniques that I can use to address the literacy concerns of the emergent and advanced learner alike.
