Developed, reviewed and tested by forty educators from all
Pearson History has been built 'from the ground
up' for both specific History-trained teachers and generalist
teachers needing guidance with the subject. A team of over thirty
practising teachers and educators from around Australia and the
Asia Pacific have worked for two years to write, review and revise
the subject matter to ensure a History resource that teachers and
students will love.
We also invited fourteen education consultants
representing History teachers nationally to review the text and
provide invaluable feedback. This improved the literacy levels,
history skills and inquiry-based approach of the series.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander content developed by the
National Museum of Australia
The Australian Curriculum includes the cross curriculum
perspective 'Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History', to be
taught in the History Curriculum. While developing this culturally
sensitive content, we collaborated with the National Museum of
Australia and their expert affiliates, including:
- David Arnold - Education Manager, National
Museum of Australia, who helped provide Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander information for Pearson
- Trish Albert - (former) Senior Indigenous
Officer, National Museum of Australia, who worked as an author on
the Pearson History series.
For the Torres Strait Islander content, we also worked with
Rawiri Taonui, an experienced lecturer and
education consultant (Professor of Indigenous Studies, Auckland
University of Technology, New Zealand).
