This unit is the first of two Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) units which focus on expanding students’ understandings of HASS resources, curriculum development and teaching within a primary classroom, where learners and teachers are positioned as inquirers in the world. Building upon the discipline unit undertaken in the first year of studies (AIA105), this unit aims to increase student’s awareness of the diversity of peoples and groups who live in Australia, and the different ways in which world-views are developed. To this end, critical civics and citizenship understandings are constructed through experiences of Indigenous, Local, National, Asian, and Global and Sustainability perspectives. This unit focuses with special interest on children in the lower primary grades.
