Triggered by the transforming Australian National Curriculum, this new Australian text approaches the teaching of History and Geography as separate key learning areas. It also shows how they can be taught as integrated subjects.
All the authors of this new text are nationally and internationally recognised specialists in their fields and the text spans teaching of Geography and History from the foundation years through to year 10.
