This subject explores how Human Society and its Environment (HSIE) teaching and curriculum in Years 7 to 12 can be organised and managed for effective learning. This subject is closely aligned to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate) descriptors. The subject therefore combines theory with practice to provide teacher-education students with the skills and understanding required to begin to teach HSIE in a secondary school. The subject includes an in-depth study of secondary Year 7-10 HSIE syllabuses, lesson planning, different forms and functions of teaching and learning activities for a successful HSIE classroom. This subject is a pre-requisite for the other HSIE Teaching Methods subjects and Professional Experience subjects.
