  • 6. Towards an AustralianCurriculum’ (from draft, 09)
    • “ To achieve the stated aims of the Australian science curriculum it is proposed that there needs to be less emphasis on a transmission model of pedagogy and more emphasis on a model of student engagement and inquiry .
    • The driving force of the transmission model is teacher explanation whereas the learning engine for inquiry is based on teacher questions and discussion.
    • Teacher explanation is still important but it should be seen as one skill in a broad repertoire of teaching skills.”
  • 7. The Australian Curriculum (in draft only, 2010)
    • 3 Inter-related Content Strands:
    • science understanding (facts, concepts, principles, laws, theories, models)
    • science inquiry skills (investigations, evidence)
    • science as a human endeavour (decision making, social and ethical issues, cultural perspectives, historical and future aspects )
  • 8. What could the science be?
