F–10 curriculum

Teaching contemporary issues in Civics and Citizenship

Meaningful learning in Civics and Citizenship engages with real-world case studies and discussions about contemporary issues. These could be debates during elections, responses to climate change, or local issues such as young people’s access to recreational spaces.

Contemporary issues in Civics and Citizenship is a new professional learning resource to support teachers implementing Civics and Citizenship F–10 that will make it easier for teachers to use current issues in the classroom.

The resource comprises 6 professional learning modules, including pre-readings, group activities, discussion questions and prompts, plus other resources. It can be used by individual teachers or teams of teachers.
