This subject covers planning and delivering skills and content for stages 2 and 3 of the NSW History K–10 Syllabus and the Geography K–10 Syllabus. Special emphasis is placed on the cross-curriculum priority of sustainability and other areas identified as important learning, especially civics and citizenship. Students are supported to take their teaching beyond the classroom by facilitating action-oriented campaigns that apply history and geography to researching and addressing real-world issues. Examples include how to explain and reflect on ways to celebrate Australia Day; humanitarian support for refugees; the impact of ever-expanding use of single-use plastics or rising meat consumption on the environment; and government roles in deciding what religion people can pursue. Experts and campaigners from external organisations support the teaching of this subject.
