    • 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.”
    • 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 )
    • What could the science be?
