Drawing from the Australian Curriculum, Connecting with History provides:

strategies that foster the development of key historical skills, knowledge and understanding

advice on using strategies within an inquiry framework

curriculum snapshots showing the strategies in action in the classroom

brief, easy-to-use formats

tools to support students in thinking about what they learn

suggestions for adapting the ideas further.

Connecting with History is the resource you will want at hand when you are planning what and how to teach, and looking for ways to engage and inspire lifelong learners in history.
