New Trajectories for Teaching the Humanities: Considering Curriculum and Pedagogical Imperatives
Educators need to think critically about what knowledge, skills and dispositions students at the secondary school level require in the future. Increasing global flows of students, ideas and information, and current issues of common global concern, coupled with the realities of the crowded curriculum make this imperative. This workshop considers what understandings should be considered as essential for young people to develop. Participants will explore varied pedagogical trajectories for humanities educators including negotiated curriculum, issues based models and integrated studies curriculum, in comparison to traditional approaches to the teaching and learning of the humanities.
