Description

HASS Week

The HASS Week WA Organising Committee invites you to join us for a cross-sector celebration of the Humanities and Social Sciences Learning Area. The theme of the Conference is HASStag Your Future with a focus on the social capital and critical thinking skills aligned to the Humanities Learning Area. Future-focused teaching and learning equips our young people with essential social and humanitarian skills as they move into their future work and life. This HASS conference will assist teachers in their implementation of the WA Curriculum, pedagogical approaches, HASS inquiry skills, Information Technology, Interdisciplinary methods of teaching HASS.

The program will include a series of 45 minute concurrent sessions in the morning, presented by teachers, university lecturers and resource providers. In the afternoon, we will hear the Student Voice of HASS with school teams of up to six students, presenting a 15 minute HASS Highlight from their school, outlining a past, present or future issue, at a local, national or global level. Here you can expect to see a showcase of multi-media, interdisciplinary presentations, demonstrating critical thinking, innovation, collaboration and creative skills.
