    The website 

    http://gambay.com.au/teachers/secondary/civics 


    shows  

    ways to incorporate the Cross Curriculum Priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures into all learning areas. This includes  Civics and Citizenship. 

    In Year 10 Civic and Citizenship, the content description ACHCK093 shown below is an opportunity to embed this priority. 


    Year 10

    How Australia’s international legal obligations shape Australian law and government policies, including in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (ACHCK093)

    • Research language rights or the rights of linguistic minorities as part of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
    • Identify whether these international conventions and declarations have shaped Australian government policies with regard to the languages of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.(http://gambay.com.au/teachers/secondary/civics)

    SEAQ has had an enquiry about what resources are available  for teaching Civics and Citizenship for Year 10.  

    Civics and Citizenship curriculum was endorsed only at the end of last year and so publishers probably have not had time to develop any texts yet and the QCAA has no advice currently but they say advice and guidelines will becoming soon. 

    Here are some ideas . 

    This Jacaranda Wiley book may be of interest-  http://www.jaconline.com.au/page/product/Civics-Citizenship-Alive-10-Australian-Curriculum-Edition-eBookPLUS-Online-Purchase/isbn13=9780730314301 . This company sells text books and digital books aligned with the Australian Curriculum. 

      Also SEAQ has set up a page of Civics and Citizenship resource links,  http://www.seaq.org.au/Civics-and-Citizenship-Website-Resources and a page of Year 10 resource links,  http://www.seaq.org.au/Year-10-Classroom-Resourceswhich may be helpful but you need to join SEAQ to access those pages.    

     Another source of resources would be the EQ C2C materials available for schools through Scootle.

    If teachers do know of other resources for teaching year 10, C&C sharing these would be most appreciated  via either our blog, twitter https://twitter.com/SeaqQld using #Year10CivicsandCitizenship facebook https://www.facebook.com/SeaqQld or email to seaqinfo@gmail.com.
