This subject develops teacher candidates’ understanding of the place of business studies in the Australian secondary curriculum and the various factors that impact upon its implementation in school contexts.
Curriculum frameworks such as VELS, AusVELS, VCE, VET and the Australian Curriculum for various business related subjects in Years 7-12 will be examined to enhance teacher candidates’ disciplinary knowledge and skills and widen their appreciation of the role that literacy; numeracy and language play in teaching and learning within business related subjects. These subjects include commerce, economics, civics and citizenship related studies at Years 7-10 and subjects such as accounting; business management; economics and legal studies in the later years. Consumer, civic and financial literacy demands of these subjects will be explored together with consideration of how numeracy (e.g. data analysis and interpretation) can enhance student understanding in subjects such as economics and accounting.
