This unit is the first of two Humanities, Societies & Environments (HSE) units which focus on expanding students’ understandings of HSE 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, Global and Sustainability perspectives.

This unit focuses with special interest on children in years Foundation to 2.


Identifying resources for teaching and learning in HSE: Students will collate an annotated resource folder of learning resources developed in response to learning in this unit. The resources will reflect theoretical and applied understandings of Indigenous, Local, National, Asian, Global and Sustainability perspectives within the primary classroom, 2500 words equivalent, 60%


Unit planning:  Students (in small groups) will map the concepts of HSE interdisciplinary learning through a scope and sequence unit plan, 1500 words equivalent, 40%
