Introduction

This Unit extends your understanding of teaching and learning in Humanities and Social Sciences in the secondary school years building on content covered in EMT540 Introduction to Society and Environment. There is a focus on the teaching demands of the senior secondary curriculum and the Civics and Citizenship learning area. You will engage with the Australian Curriculum Cross-Curriculum perspectives (Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories and cultures, and Sustainability). You will gain an understanding of models of historical and geographical understanding and will adapt existing curriculum documents to specific teaching contexts. Further emphasis will be given to learning about and applying ICT skills.
