Workshop: Geographical thinking: Teaching the concepts – F-10

The workshop explores the seven concepts of the Australian Curriculum: Geography and provides practical examples to use with students when discussing what they involve and how they make us think when studying anything. Geographical thinking is a way of looking at the world and students should be encouraged to engage directly with the concepts to develop their geographical understanding.

Workshop: Deconstructing the Australian Curriculum: Geography 

This workshop introduces participants to the AGTA GeogSpace process developed to deconstruct a year level of the geography curriculum. The process involves looking at a year level of the curriculum and:

  • identifying knowledge, understandings, skills, concepts in the achievement standards
  • aligning the content to the achievement standards
  • developing customised inquiry questions
  • creating an overarching Big Idea.

 Workshops participants will have a chance to undertake the process for a year level of their choice and critique its usefulness for the program development needs in their school.
