Resources and modules for Australian secondary students

In partnership with the Museum of Australian Democracy, we are proud to offer modules and resources for Australian secondary schools to teach the social sciences.

Each term we’ll be launching four themed modules for secondary schools with engaging, professionally produced resources for you to mix and match in class.

Each themed module contains:

  • A professionally produced podcast episode (20-25 mins)
  • An engaging video (2-4 mins)
  • A provocation worksheet for students to use – this can be used with either resource.

The podcast and video content feature Australia’s top social scientists: educators and economists, lawyers and linguists, psychologists and philosophers, historians, geographers and more, so it is thought-provoking, and evidence-based.
