Towards a National Core Curriculum for Year 12Research Developments
AbstractIn February this year Federal Education Minister Julie Bishop released the report, Year 12 Curriculum Content and Achievement Standards, prepared by ACER. This provides a strong case for a common curriculum core in at least some senior school subjects after a review of curricula found there is already a high degree of consistency in what is being taught, as Gabrielle Matters writes. This study, undertaken in the second half of 2006, provides the first Australia-wide picture of what is expected of students taking five subjects – English (including Literature), mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Australian History – in the final years of secondary school.
