Summary The twenty-first century raises important questions about the kind of education best suited to living in Australian society and its global context. Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) is a key part of the answer, and this book is an essential resource for those working in this learning area. It reviews the best theory and practice in planning curriculum and teaching in SOSE, and includes key teaching approaches relevant to Australian curricula. There are chapters on major curricular perspectives and conceptual strands, as well as on planning for teaching and assessment of key knowledge, processes, skills and values elements of SOSE. This third edition has been updated to incorporate recent developments in State syllabuses and frameworks, as well as relevant national curriculum projects, and includes new and expanded chapters on teaching thinking and experiential learning. A web site of additional supporting material accompanies the book. The book is designed both as an introduction to teaching for teacher education courses, and for practising teachers who are looking for an introductory guide to the latest theory and practice in the key learning area. It is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the development of Studies of Society and Environment in Australian schools
