Melbourne Uni Master of Teaching (Secondary) specialised in Civics, Politics and History

Methodology

Questioning is my main method. My question will lead you to find the answer by yourself over an interesting and challenging process. Once you've got to the good answer, it will become part of you that you will never need cheat sheets for. The questions will highly resemble what you will have in the SAGs and final exams, which in the meantime facilitates improvement of writing style.
The questions are based on current affairs which connects the textbook concepts to real-life scenario. We will chat like 7pm news commentators in the sessions.

Background

I have a Bachelor of International Relations (ATAR 92) with Honours in ANU. I did phd in La Trobe Uni for 1.5 year before I started the Master's now. I've led numerous tutorials in uni and tutored a few students for ATAR in the past (reference provided). In Melbourne Graduate School of Education I am one of the top teacher candidates in the cohort of 400+ students. During the two terms I taught in Footscray City College for placement and was referred by my Year 11 students as "the best politics teacher".
