Course description

This course considers key ideas about society and the environment which inform the development of essential learnings for young people in the primary and middle schooling years. It explores the significance in this context of the understandings and inquiry processes of a range of discipline areas, including history, social science and cultural studies, and their connections with environmental studies, with particular reference to Australia and its place in the global system. It evaluates research on the development of these understandings and thinking processes among children in the primary school years.
