Description

The HASS Week WA Organising Committee invites you to join us for a cross-sector celebration of the Humanities and Social Sciences Learning Area. We welcome your participation in this Conference by offering this unique opportunity to market you products and services to Secondary HASS teachers on Thursday 2nd August and Primary teachers on Friday 3rd August. 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. Publishers and Exhibitors will be provided with a space in the State Library WA theatre foyer and one trestle table. Set-up will be available from 8.30am until after the lunch break at 1.30pm.
