Description This unit explores the key concepts of learning and teaching in the areas of history, geography, civics and citizenship, and incorporates place studies, sustainability and environmental education. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies in birth to 5 years early childhood settings are a focus in this unit. The unit will explore a broad, complex and engaging field of study which reflects people as social beings who interact together and with the environment through and over time. Perspectives including those of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, socio-cultural influences and place-based pedagogies will be investigated. Students will be encouraged to explore their own place in Australian society and the way in which this contributes to their professional identity and teaching practice.
