Units: Find by Curriculum

Classroom Units of Work in PETAA collections


Listings without a key symbol are open access/samples. The key denotes member only access: access to a broad range of classroom units of work including the annual guide to exploring CBCA short listed books is one of the many benefits of PETAA membership. Discover the benefits of PETAA membership.

Units here are those with links to a second (or more) curriculum in addition to English. HASS curriculum focus areas of Communicating and Researching are among those in the HASS curriculum that are not discipline specific (that can be applied in a general sense). These lists will continue to build as work is undertaken to further review cross-curriculum links in PETAA resources.
