Secondary School Resources

Global trade curriculum-aligned resources for Australian secondary school classrooms.

The resource can be taught as a whole, or can be broken up into components that align with specific sections of the curriculum.

The materials are aimed primarily at the Geography and Economics & Business curriculum taught at year 9 and 10 levels, however content and certain activities could be used in a number of other curriculum areas, for example Civics & Citizenship, and can also be easily adapted for other year levels.
