The Primary Additional Basic Qualification (ABQ) course, provides an introduction to teaching at the primary level. Critical to the Primary Basic program is the ability of teachers to ensure positive learning experiences for young children. Teachers create learning environments that foster curiosity, creativity, independence and self-regulation. The course will explore the characteristics of the primary child, how to facilitate and assess learning, and how to create an optimal learning environment so that every primary learner will be successful. An underlying assumption of this course is the belief that effective primary programs include active, hands-on learning and a responsive curriculum that has a particular emphasis on social development and literacy and numeracy acquisition across all content areas.
