OverviewIn a time of major curriculum change, Teaching Society and Environment prepares teachers to develop and implement programs in the broad field of social and environmental studies, including humanities, history and geography. It successfully blends theory with practical approaches to provide a basis for teaching that is engaging, inquiry based and relevant to students' lives. As well as four new chapters covering teaching history and geography, the content also demonstrates how to foster general capabilities such as literacy, information and communication technology, intercultural understanding and thinking skills. Throughout, it strongly represents the cross-curricular dimensions of 'Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives' and 'sustainability'. Above all it maintains the highly-respected philosophical and practical orientations of previous editions, including a commitment to deep learning in a context of critical inquiry. With the aid of this valuable text, teachers can assist primary, middle and secondary students to become active and informed citizens who contribute to a just, democratic and sustainable future.
