Investigating inquiry pedagogy, as the signature pedagogy associated with the Humanities and Social Sciences, is the focus of this course, both in theory and in practice. Preservice teachers in this course will develop an understanding of the sub-strands of Humanities and Social Sciences (History; Geography; Civics and Citizenship; and Economics and Business) that draw on students' growing experience of community and the wider world. Preservice teachers will also integrate the Australian curriculum Cross-Curriculum Priorities and General Capabilities in their planning and classroom delivery. In addition they will develop their knowledge and skill in the humanities consistent with the Australian curriculum and modern pedagogical approaches. To reflect on their teaching of the Humanities and Social Sciences, preservice teachers in this course will also identify and contribute to professional learning networks in order to improve practice.
