Students explore the world and their place in it, thereby promoting critical awareness and appreciation of History/ HSIE and PDHPE, along with cross-curricular links. This unit examines professional and pedagogical approaches to K-6 students' learning about ‘democratic and socially just practices’, recognising ‘shared heritage’, ‘multiple perspectives and viewpoints’ about history, human society and the environment. This unit also addresses the Active, Dance, Games and Sports, Gymnastics and interpersonal relationships strands in the PDHPE K-6 syllabus. The 5 skills are also examined to ensure the student teacher unpacks strategies for developing positive healthy attitudes in students. Student teachers develop skills and knowledge in planning, teaching and evaluating students' learning in PDHPE and HSIE/History across the K-6 context.
