Community Views sought for National Geography Curriculum

Hi all,

There is a call for community views for the National Geography Curriculum. If you are involved in Geography or see the value of Geography and are a community member which we all are please consider responding to the online survey.

There is an online survey to fill in the above link. Any way the link gives you some ideas.

The blurb:

I spotted this in the EDNA Schools Headlines where they said the following:

“A paper is being drafted that seeks the views of Geography teachers, students, academics and members of the community as to what should be in the National Curriculum. The paper ‘Geography in the 21st Century: a National Curriculum for Australia’ is part of the National Geography Curriculum project and is an initiative of the Australian Geography Teachers’ Association (AGTA), Royal Geographical Society of Queensland (RGSQ) and the Institute of Australian Geographers (IAG). Closing date for comments is 8 December 2008. The draft paper will be available by March 2009 and there will be wide consultations on the draft, including meetings in each state. National Geography Curriculum, October 2008.”
