  2. 2. NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation CentrePatterns of study for teachersDeveloping a pattern of study is an process to supportquality teaching by supporting teacher / faculty discussionof the possibilities presented by the new syllabus. Patternsof study can:• identify the topics which support students to makeconnections with own culture and heritage• utilise teacher expertise and interests• support a deep understanding of history• support teachers to engage their students with currentschool priorities through choice• support teachers and their students to work together onmeaningful learning• may enhance the integrity of history as a discipline.
