This subject develops students' understanding of the NSW primary curriculum areas of History and Geography. Students acquire proficiency in planning, presenting, assessing and evaluating pupils' learning experiences at the K–6 levels, consistent with current syllabus approaches. Students are also encouraged to critically reflect on the wider challenges of preparing Australian school children to become community, national and global citizens. It is anticipated that through studying this subject, prospective teachers do more than inform themselves about the social sciences, but that they hone their skills as social scientists, formulating and expressing the views and questions that social scientists (and all of us) do.
