General Information

Overview

History Curriculum and Pedagogy develops pre-service teachers’ knowledge and understanding of the content and disciplinary approaches to teaching and learning history in primary school settings. The concept of historiography in evaluating and responding to sources is developed and applied to an analysis of the construction of the past embedded in the content of the Australian curriculum materials for this learning area. Students reflect on the knowledge base necessary for primary school teachers to structure historical inquiry and teach historical literacy skills that support learners in developing evidence-informed explanations of past events. Students analyse and select source materials and construct resources and teaching strategies that structure inquiry processes around big ideas; topics of relevance to local, national and global history; and problem solving approaches to historical perspectives including those of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
