The History Teachers’ Association of Australia (HTAA) has just launched a unique website: AC History Units www.achistoryunits.edu.au. Developed by classroom teachers from around Australia, it is designed to support the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: History in primary and secondary years.The site presents eight units. The first, Teaching History, is a foundation unit, providing a brief introduction to the discipline of history and designed to ‘unpack’ the skills, concepts and historical understandings of the Australian curriculum. The remaining seven units focus on specific topics relevant to particular year levels and provide practical support in the form of teaching programs, sample learning sequences, a wide range of resources and assessment ideas.
