Prerequisites EDSS520 History Curriculum and Teaching 1
This unit builds upon and extends the foundation work commenced in the first unit on history curriculum. It is designed to enable preservice teachers to understand teaching and learning methodologies of secondary history. With particular reference to the teaching of history in upper secondary classes, preservice teachers will consider appropriate classroom strategies which enable students to evaluate sources and make judgments based on them. Preservice teachers will continue to develop strategies to enable their pupils to effectively communicate logical arguments concerning historical issues and to research and investigate historical problems.
