HTASA - History Teachers' Assocation of SA

Welcome to HTASA.

 

2017 sees the introduction of the most significant changes to Stage 1 and Stage 2 History for more than a decade.  HTASA is rising to the challenge and will offer high value support to members.  

There will be a series of important workshops presented over the year which will facilitate curriculum change.  A clear focus is on curriculum understanding, assessment task exploration and resource distribution.    

Please keep an eye on the diary and look out for our events.  Bookings will open in the weeks preceding each event but if you are after more (or just early!) information drop at line to our Secretary David Albano (dalbano@scotch.sa.edu.au)  .

Look out for:

  • a February afternoon dedicated to unpacking the 2016 Stage 2 exam and moderation. In 2017 there will be a keynote on the 2018 introduction of the new curriculum with a particular focus on assessment modes and methods.
     
  • a March Saturday dedicated to Stage 1 and 2. This will explore the opportunities afforded by the new curriculum. This is a practical workshop and will involve guided sharing of resources, tasks and plans.  Expect a lot of discussion about potential course content which meets the needs of the new courses.
     
  • a September full day workshop devoted to final planning for the 2018 start of the brand new Stage 2 course.

In order to better serve our membership the structure of HTASA is changing in 2017.  A series of four working groups will be established and run over the year.  We will have groups specifically for

  • curriculum development 
  • conference and workshops
  • contests
  • communication.


 

Changes to Stage 1 and Stage Curriculum.

Hear Luke Nash, SACE Curriculum Officer, talk about the changes and implementation.
