    • Policy and curriculum implicationsCurriculum:• disjoint (in theory and practice) for a while between AC and what they do at senior years• Depth studies -> Overview and Depth -> Depth (this pattern will remain until 2015ish)• Hopefully a more ‘Asia Literate’ cohort emerging.• Hopefully students with wider knowledge of world history narrative.• Australian History content in senior years limited.• Cohorts ready for first year university 2016 most likely to have emerged with VCE History• Consider skills they have and content that they have covered.• Cohorts ready for first year university in 2019 have had Australian Curriculum: History 7-12• Will there be different skills and content that they have covered.PolicySchool level – what will change?Practice?
