The subject is offered jointly as a collaboration between educators in HSIE and Science & Technology.
At the centre of the development of the subject that is the focus of this study is collaboration between colleagues from HSIE and Science & Technology, two Key Learning Areas (KLAs) in the New South Wales school curriculum.
Given the diversity of perspectives in HSIE and Science & Technology alongside prior classroom teaching experience, both instructors felt strongly about developing a subject that would break the mold into which our teacher education core subjects typically fall: a 2-hour lecture with the whole group of up to 200 students and then break-outs with tutorial groups of 24 or so students.
Allison Lee was formerly a teacher-librarian, now turned HSIE
teacher at Emanuel School, Sydney.
As part of a Targeted Literacy Program a Year 8 class was composed in 2006 for a two year trial to enrich skills in the English, HSIE and Religious Education KLAs.
The main challenge for the teacher was how to integrate the content of English, HSIE and RE as well as liaising with the science teacher to incorporate that subject area as well.
