Teaching Humanities and Social Sciences in the Primary School 4th Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of how to teach in the humanities and social sciences areas of the curriculum, while providing practical strategies and contemporary teaching techniques to take into the classroom.
Like all good academic books addressing the Australian Curriculum in the Humanities and Social Sciences, this textbook covers all four strands of the subject: History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, and Economics and Business.
Unlike earlier edition textbooks of the same title, the cross-curriculum priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures; Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and Sustainability, are incorporated throughout each chapter.
Teaching Humanities and Social Sciences in the Primary School is an easy to read, accessible academic book and continues to be a solid foundation for pre-service primary teachers in the humanities and social sciences.
