the teachers guide to the new Queensland Senior Syllabus
By now, education professionals have begun planning for the new Queensland Senior Geography Syllabus which officially takes effect from 2019. While Queensland teachers are accustomed to changes in curriculum, managing a transition as wholesale as this can be an overwhelming task. That’s why our publisher of the new Jacaranda Senior Geography for Queensland series, Sandra Duncanson, took a moment between proofing maps and cross-checking content to share her expert knowledge of the coming changes to the new Syllabus.

In this definitive Teacher’s Guide, we explore the overarching objectives of the new Queensland Senior Geography Syllabus which aims to help students build an understanding of the interconnectedness of ‘space and place’, develop strong geography skills, delve deeply into the factors that affect communities, understand world and humanity’s challenges and generate justified, evidence-based responses for community’s unique needs. This free guide also discusses the changes coming to the assessments, including what teachers need to know about the external and internal assessments.

With all this change you may be thinking where do I begin? To help ensure Queensland geography teachers address the important aspects and main changes in their teaching plans we have provided our 4 top tips on how to address the changes, plus outlined how the new Jacaranda Senior Geography for Queensland series and its complementary resources can help you navigate these changes.
