Price: $25.91

Dr Hassim, from the Asia Education Foundation, reflects on the development and implementation of the Australian Curriculum and discusses the place and role of cross-curriculum priorities and general capabilities. He comments on the imperative for an Intercultural understanding view of the Asia priority within the Australian Curriculum and explores the implications for teaching and learning, as well as how Australian schools in general are approaching the need to develop Asia-capable young Australians. He concludes that there are multiple curriculum entry points for intercultural understanding and deep, meaningful treatment of the Asia priority, and that the challenge ahead is how well these dots are joined together for teachers and school leaders.
