Place and Time is based on general, research-based principles and concepts that can be adapted to suit any modifications that result as the story of the Australian Curriculum unfolds.

The authors have anticipated that revisions to the curriculum will take place and have written this textbook on that basis by outlining relevant research-based principles combined with practical examples that can be adapted as the curriculum evolves.

Teachers of the humanities and social sciences disciplines who adopt the concepts outlined in this book will be in a position to revive the teaching and learning of these disciplines within an integrated curriculum framework.
