Is connected curriculum the way to go for HASS in the primary school
Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ8Q9jTRjaM&feature=youtu.be and listen to Sue Toone, Principal of Nuriootpa Primary School talk about the connected curriculum Geography trial conducted at her school in October 2011.
The trial focused on the integration of the draft Australian Curriculum: Geography into the schools connected curriculum. A thematic curriculum focused in 2011 on the theme of Past, Present and Future, with geography and history being integrated into the learning modules from Foundation to Year 7.
Thanks to the generosity of the Nuriootpa Primary School students and teachers in giving permission for their teaching materials and reflections to be part of this blog. In particular, thanks to Sue Toone, the Principal for the trial at Nuriootpa Primary School.
