Summary This book demonstrates how to use the established aims of the Australian Curriculum as a basis for planning and teaching, critiques aspects of the Australian Curriculum where appropriate, and also addresses the challenges of teaching the humanities and social sciences more generally. The book links closely to the Australian Curriculum and focuses on understanding how this content can be organised into a coherent set of experiences, related to broader educational goals, and incorporated in plans for teaching and learning. The organisation of the book recognises the broad structure of the Australian Curriculum. Part 1 establishes the context for teaching humanities and social sciences, including the development of the Australian Curriculum and the implications for curriculum and teaching of global social change. Part 2 deals with key processes of teaching within a broad inquiry model. It ocnsiders how to plan activities, lessons and units whihc will develop important knowledge, understanding, thinking processes and skills, including those that are teh focus of the Austraian Curriculum's general capabilities, such as Critical and Creative Thinking and Ethical Understanding. Part 3 of the book addresses the disciplinary subjects which are the basis of the Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum in the secondary years, and their role in an integrated approach to HASS in the F-6/7 years. A major focus on history and geography is combined with chapters on civics and citizenship and economics and business. The focus is on understandign how to teach the key concepts, thinking processes and skills that underlie the subjects. Part 4 opens with a chapter on the opportunities for integrating the various strands of the Australian Curriculum into an overall program, os important for primary and early secondary school curriculum planning. This is followed by a consideration of the three cross-curriculum prorities of the Australian Curriculum, and the crucial contribution that the Humanities and Social Sciences learning are can make to them. The book concludes with a discussion of global education and its key values of human rights, justice, peace and sustainability which are perennial concerns for the humanities and social sciences
