This unit focuses on the curriculum development of Humanities, Societies and Environments learning within a primary classroom, where learners and teachers are positioned as inquirers in the world. In this unit, we focus on the ways in which Geography, History, Futures Education, Economics and Enterprise can be taught in creative and innovative ways. We also build upon the Civics and Citizenship developed in the previous unit. These included Indigenous perspectives, Asian perspectives, Global perspectives and Environmental perspectives. Whereas in the previous unit, professional learning focussed on HSE resources, in this unit, inquiry pedagogies and sustained engagement for rich learning are investigated.
