Engage with Asia through English and History Professional Learning Modules

Six modules in a free professional learning program. The first module, Equipping yourself to teach about Asia, introduces Asia literacy in terms of the cross-curriculum priority of Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and the general capability of Intercultural understanding in the Australian Curriculum. It shows how primary and secondary teachers can build their Asia literate capabilities through teaching about Asia in English and History learning areas.

The remaining five modules are focussed on different Asian themes related specifically to content descriptions in History and English from Years 5 to 10. The modules are discrete but can be used sequentially or at different entry points. Go the resources.
