In this subject, pre-service teachers (PSTs) begin to specialise their knowledge and skills within the senior secondary-level History/Geography/Cultural Studies learning areas, particularly as they relate to the Victorian Certificate of Education curriculum and other key current curriculum frameworks in the Australian context.  PSTs will expand their understanding of contemporary theory, concepts and skills in teaching, learning and assessment through the range of senior secondary History/Geography/Cultural Studies learning areas, through an exploration of curriculum, pedagogy, planning, assessment and reporting in senior secondary History. Theoretical concepts, pedagogical principles and state and national curriculum structures within senior secondary History teaching, learning and assessment are taught, examined and applied across the learning activities and assessment tasks.  PSTs will consider, demonstrate and reflect upon a theoretically-, pedagogically- and research-informed professional understanding of senior secondary
