Teaching History in the primary classroom

 

Sydney Living Museums has suspended all public programming until further notice.

This includes onsite learning programs, performances, talks, walking tours and all school holiday activities. We are taking these steps as a public health precaution in support of measures to contain COVID-19. However, you can still discover our places, stories and collections online and across our social channels. Stay connected to be inspired and entertained.

Sydney Living Museums offers professional development for primary teachers. Delivered by expert museum educators and curators, our courses provide five hours of NESA QTC Registered PD and explores practical strategies for teaching History that you can take back to your own classroom.  

Each course provides:

  • strategies and techniques developed from a relevant selection of skills and concepts from the new K–10 History syllabus
  • learning activities and outcomes framed and underpinned by a historical inquiry approach
  • valuable approaches that encourage students to practise working as historians rather than simply learning about historical content
  • an engaging mix of theory and hands-on practice
  • take-home resources for classroom implementation. 

 

Completing each course in the Sydney Living Museums Teaching History in the primary classroom program will contribute 5 hours of QTC Registered PD, addressing 2.1.2, 3.4.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
