Geography joins the new Aus Curriculum
School students across Australia will soon be able to learn from the first national geography curriculum, with the final version released today by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).
School Education Minister Peter Garrett said the Foundation to Year 10 Australian Curriculum: Geography will help students better understand the world they live in. The new geography curriculum also includes cross-curriculum priorities that tie into other aspects of the Australian Curriculum.
