Gerry will provide an explanation of the structure of the Victorian Curriculum History, the importance of the Historical Concepts and Skills strand and approaches to assessment using the achievement standards.

Teach, Learn, History, Repeat
Alexis Watson, Norwood Secondary College

The Victorian Curriculum 7-10 History offers a wide variety of engaging topics which aim to challenge and inspire our students. From early civilisations to conflicts, revolutions and human rights, the curriculum provides opportunities for students to explore, investigate, debate and question.

In this session, Alexis will cover:

  • mapping a level 7-10 History course that fulfills the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum
  • strategies for delivering a great deal of content, whilst still focusing on skill development
  • tips and tricks for the classroom to support your academically diverse learners.

By the end of the session, attendees will walk away with:

  • approaches to plan and deliver content in line with the Victorian Curriculum
  • strategies to differentiate content efficiently for a wide range of abilities
  • the confidence to teach skills across all levels of History so that students are properly prepared for the senior years, and
  • a wide range of resources to engage students in history.
3.00 pm – 3.40 pm
