This unit aims to prepare students to teach confidently across curriculum areas of Geography, Civics and Citizenship, History, Economy, Philosophy and general Humanities offered in Years 7-10 in schools. The focus is to develop in students: knowledge of theoretical and practical aspects; a range of engaging pedagogical approaches; design of teaching and learning sequences and tools for assessment. Through research and reflection students will analyse recent developments in Humanities education and their impact on curriculum development, teaching and resource implications. In this unit students will review research as it informs and shapes Humanities teaching; study design of teaching and learning activities that acknowledge sequence, breadth, depth and curriculum policy; undertake analysis of concepts in sustainability, indigenous education, justice, peace and citizenship across local, national and global contexts; incorporate appropriate assessment tools to enhance learning; appraise resources including technological, print and community based; and have opportunities to receive professional support through both real and virtual networks of educators.
