EDSS428 Lecture 7
A note on curriculum documents
So we have talked about history and geography... but Humanities Education is so much more than these 'subjects'....
Dr Catherine Hart email@example.com
In 2015, the Humanities across F-6 is a combination of:
(Victorian Essential Learning Standards, 2005), and
AC (Australian Curriculum)
which we refer to as
The only Humanities AC currently implemented is History. In 2015, AC geography will be implemented and become part of AUSVels. I therefore refer to AC Geography in this unit.
Why is this important?
Imagine you are in front of a Google Earth map of your life…
Locate where you were born: country, region, and city/town. Take a second to think about how these locations are meaningful to you
Now think about your current personal geography and concept of place (home, neighbourhood, uni, work, and all the spaces in between)
How does meaning and emotion get connected to physical spaces and locations?
Geography is experienced as personal and not abstract
Geography and education for sustainable development: an important distinction
"Geography is the study of places - their biophysical and human characteristics, their interconnections and interdependencies, and their variation across space"
(as cited in Reynolds, p190)
Environmentally sustainable development (ESD) goes beyond this and explicitly raises the need to investigate issues of maintenance ... it is futures focused
Where is this place, what is it like and why?
How is this place changing and why?
How and why do people damage and sustain environments at local and global scales?
What does it mean to live in an interdependent world?
How are we interconnected? Is this always a good thing?
How and why is space contested?
Who gets what, where and why? Who decides?
What kinds of futures are possible? Probable? Preferable?
Citizenship Education is foundational to Humanities Education ... why?
Provides students with an understanding of how and why their society works?
Let's check out the AC Geog Scope and Sequence (see handout)
