For many students, history is an important foundational subject in Australian schools because it may be the only time they will formally study or engage with the subject matter. Schooling in Australia is the responsibility of states and territories. Respective governments organise teacher accreditation and registration, curriculum through syllabuses, assessment, and the myriad of policies and practices that guide the school education of children and young people. The most recent review of the Australian Curriculum took place in 2020 across all learning areas, with reports and an updated website to be released in 2022. This chapter examines the development of the Australian Curriculum and the role that history played in encouraging a national approach to education. It then analyses the structure of the Australian Curriculum: History, the inclusion of history within the Humanities and Social Sciences learning area, and how the teaching of history encourages citizenship in Australia. Lastly, we examine three ways that history is constructed in curriculum in Australia: 1. The Australian Curriculum: History for Years 7–10 and 11–12 2. Victoria’s senior history syllabus for Years 11–12 3. The Year 12 History Extension course in New South Wales
Teaching Secondary History provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of teaching History to years 7–12 in Australian schools. Engaging directly with the Australian Curriculum, this text introduces pre-service teachers to the discipline of History. It builds on students' historical knowledge, thinking and skills and offers practical guidance on how to construct well-rounded History lessons for students. From inquiry strategies and teacher- and student-centred practice, to embedding the cross-curriculum priorities in planning and assessment, this text supports the learning and development of pre-service History teachers by connecting the 'big ideas' of teaching with the nuance of History content. Each chapter features short-answer and Pause and think questions to enhance understanding of key concepts, Bringing it together review questions to consolidate learning, classroom scenarios, examples of classroom work and a range of information boxes to connect students to additional material.
