Understanding and Teaching AusVELS Geography for Primary Schools is designed to ease the burden of Victorian primary teachers by showing them how to understand and use the curriculum they are being asked to teach. By unpacking AusVELS Geography in terms that non-geographers can easily understand, this book takes work out of standards-aligned geography instruction. Learn More
