Year - 2020

This final HSIE unit of study gives you the opportunity to consolidate and build new knowledge for teaching the NSW NESA syllabuses for the Australian Curriculum in History K-6 and Geography K-6. It is expected that you will draw on relevant research and theories to inform your pedagogical decisions for teaching history and geography in the primary setting. Through the practical assessment tasks and classroom activities, you will develop a deeper understanding of pedagogy and how technologies can be used to activate geographical and historical understanding. The authentic learning experiences and assessment tasks offered in this unit are strongly aligned to the NESA Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
