AC – HASS Regional Workshop Term 4

back to Programs

This is the second of two workshops designed for school leaders of Humanities and Social Sciences from P – 10. It will build upon prior work undertaken in the previous workshop but will be productive for first time attendees. Workshops will take place in the South, North and North-West. This will be an opportunity for school leaders of HASS to meet and work together on unpacking the Australian Curriculum: HASS; assessment and moderation; common assessment tasks; scope and sequence documents; pedagogy; creating and improving inquiry cycles; using and analysing data; and sharing resources.

As a result of participating in the course, School Leaders of HASS will:

  1. Increase their curricula knowledge in key areas of HASS with particular emphasis on embedding the inquiry and skills strand in unit and lesson planning, teaching and assessment;
  2. Improve their pedagogical knowledge in relation to supporting student inquiry and development of understanding
  3. Be introduced to quality resources to support both deep understanding of content and the skills of inquiry
  4. Develop and build leadership capacity within the HASS learning area.
