Place and Time: Explorations in Teaching Geography and History | History in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

Hot off the press! This book, written by Tony Taylor, Carmel Fahey, Jeana Kriewaldt & David Boon, explores a discipline-based approach to history and geography teaching in K-12 contexts.

 

Highly recommended.
