Humanities and Social Sciences for the Australian Curriculum develops the knowledge, understanding and skills required to participate as active, engaged and informed citizens and consumers within the community, Australia and the world. Compiled by Malcolm McInerney and written by Australia’s leading educators, Humanities and Social Sciences for the Australian Curriculum is a comprehensive and compelling series for Years 7–9 that caters for the different learning styles and abilities in Australian classrooms without sacrificing the depth and quality of content. This series encourages students to analyse sources and use evidence to illuminate the past, and to pose questions and propose actions to enrich understanding of today’s geographic, political and commercial world. Using this inquiry-based approach they will develop the knowledge, understanding and skills required to participate as active and informed citizens and consumers within the community, Australia, and the world.
