Practice of Teaching: Cultures in History and Geography - EDST300

This unit develops teacher education students' pedagogical content knowledge and skills of the NSW HSIE Key Learning Area including the History and Geography syllabuses, with a focus on Pre-stage 1 to Stage 3. It requires students to analyse how they will teach about cultures in K-6 classrooms, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, and Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia without perpetuating the current stereotypes and generalisations. Students also apply their understanding of how children learn in a professional experience context. EDST300 incorporates a 15 day professional experience placement in a primary school where they apply their understanding of how students learn in a professional experience context.
