What opportunities are there to include Asia in the curriculum?

The Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia priority can be addressed across all learning areas/subjects. Curriculum sample maps identify Asia-focused content descriptions and elaborations for each learning area/subject and resources can support learning across the curriculum. 

Access sample maps that highlight the opportunities to teach about Asia across different learning/subject areas. Provide time at a staff meeting/curriculum team meetings for staff to consider:

  • What opportunities exist to teach about Asia?
  • What Asia content is currently taught in the curriculum?

Use this template to conduct a curriculum review (PDF: 244 KB) to identify current Asia content and what new opportunities exist.
