A new curriculum can be exciting, but overwhelming. Having to rebuild a stock of relevant resources is no small task!
With year 11 the first to start on the new Australian Senior Curriculum in 2019, we have added senior content in the LearnPath Community Content Hub (LCCH) to support you as you resource the curriculum.
This content is curated by experienced teacher librarians and is freely available to all LearnPath users, to download, add to your system, build on, and customise.
While the LCCH is regularly being added to, guides are currently available for English, Essential English, Literature, Modern History, Ancient History, Geography, Legal Studies, and English as an additional language or dialect.
