Early Learning through the Humanities is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with Curtin University that teaches you how primary humanities education is essential to helping children grow and connect with the greater world. The unit takes an integrated and collaborative approach to teaching, and focuses on creating a broad enquiry into how history and geography establishes a child’s sense of community and connection with society.
The unit takes an inquiry-based approach to learning and encourages you to consider how success in the humanities rests on encouraging students to ask the right questions. The unit considers how children’s needs are dynamic, and how teaching can be adapted based on cultural or ethnic backgrounds.
Ultimately, this unit provides an analytical framework for evaluating how the humanities can bolster a child’s understanding of the world, and is designed to give teachers practical strategies to apply this framework in the classroom.
