Geography and Geographical Education in Victoria
Kriewaldt, Jeana
International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, v15 n2 p159-165 2006
Victoria has just emerged from 10 years where Geography has been one of three strands in the key learning area of Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE). The overarching framework emerged from an attempt to develop a national curriculum. Whilst the national curriculum was rejected by Australian state and territories who each hold legislative responsibility for their jurisdiction, the national curriculum did significantly influence Victoria's Curriculum Standards Framework (CSF). This curricula design accommodates either a disciplinary or interdisciplinary approach to the learning and teaching of Geography, which served to allow schools to shape the curriculum in their schools. In this article, the author talks about geography and geographical education in Victoria and outlines the Geography curricula framework from primary school education to post-primary school education: years 11-12 (ages 16-18). (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
