    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The Australian Curriculum Cross-curriculum priorities and the Australian Curriculum: Geography both include the term world views. The meaning of world views, the development of world views as part of the history of geographic thought, and the adoption world of views by teachers and students, affect the ways in which geography is taught and learned about in the classroom. Particular emphasis is placed on teaching geography as a science, on polarised world views in environmental geography, and on the world views of Indigenous Peoples, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
