The draft Years 3–10 Australian Curriculum: Civics and Citizenship develops students’ understanding of Australia’s political and legal systems and effective participatory citizenship in contemporary Australian society.
The Civics and Citizenship curriculum will enable students to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills, values and dispositions to be active and informed citizens in local, national, regional and global contexts.
Draft Years 3–10 Australian Curriculum: Civics and Citizenship
The draft Years 3–10 Australian Curriculum: Civics and Citizenship is open for public consultation from 6 May to 19 July 2013.
The draft curriculum can be viewed online or downloaded and printed from the Australian Curriculum consultation website. This website is designed to enable users to register and provide feedback through an online survey.
This consultation period provides an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft Civics and Citizenship curriculum and ACARA encourages participation from all stakeholders with an interest in civics and citizenship education.
Following consultation, the draft Years 3–10 Australian Curriculum: Civics and Citizenship will be revised for ACARA Board and Ministerial approval prior to publication on the Australian Curriculum website in late 2013.
