About the module
This module introduces fourteen elements to support the teaching of history in the primary levels (F–6). Each section will be presented with descriptions and explanations of various aspects of history teaching for primary teachers. You will be provided with resources, key terminology, explanations, activities and suggestions for further reading to gain more information.
Time required: 14 hours.
Every topic will take approximately one hour (including the task at the end of the topic).
Assessment: There is a quiz at the end of each section to help you process the information you have covered. You must achieve an 80% pass rate to move on to the next section. You may retake the quiz up to twenty times until you are able to achieve 80%.
Each section includes a professional development task. This is an optional activity to further your own practice. Submission of this task is not a compulsory part of this module.
A statement of module completion will be provided for all participants who successfully complete all topic assessment tasks.
