History Curriculum 2 (EDMT5659)


This module aims to introduce students to a range of source-based experimental approaches to history teaching and learning. It is also intended to provide the opportunity for individuals to pursue a topic of historical interest, to consider the ways in which this topic may be represented in the history classroom and work collaboratively in the development of teaching and learning materials. This unit is also designed to develop students' skills in applying cross curriculum content and perspectives especially civics and citizenship, literacy and numeracy and multiculturalism to the development of learning strategies and teaching resources.
