Description
This product is designed to help intending and practicing teachers deal with the implementation of the current 2012 Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences, the composite curriculum model that replaced the original 2010 history and geography models. The authors have anticipated that further rolling revisions to the curriculum will take place and have written this textbook on that basis by outlining relevant research-based principles combined with practical examples that can be adapted as the curriculum evolves.

It’s based on general, research-based pedagogical principles and concepts that can be adapted to suit any modifications that result as the story of the Australian Curriculum unfolds.

Current and prospective teachers of the humanities and social sciences disciplines who adopt the research-based ideas and concepts outlined in this book will be in a position to revive the teaching and learning of these disciplines within an integrated curriculum framework and within a more specialised, discipline-based framework.
