The Victorian Curriculum Humanities Subjects of History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship and Economics and Business drive our two year Integrated Curriculum Cycle which carries into other areas of the curriculum. An essential question underpins and guides each topic and student interests, needs and abilities are taken into account in curriculum plans.
An inquiry learning process is followed: students prior knowledge is established and questions for future learning are shared. This approach in turn motivates and engages students . They immerse themselves into that topic and then demonstrate their understanding by reflecting on their learning during the final step of their inquiry.
