Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) (2000)

The Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) key learning area centres on the way people interact with each other and with environments. It focuses on:

  • time, continuity and change
  • place and space
  • culture and identity
  • systems, resources and power.

The key learning area involves investigations of controversial and challenging issues and promotes critical thinking in the development of optimistic future visions. It encourages young people to be active participants in their world.

Students bring to Studies of Society and Environment their understandings about what it means to be young at this time. They appreciate and apply different perspectives to deepen their understandings. Students develop abilities to reflect on the values of democratic process, social justice, economic and ecological sustainability and peace to make decisions about issues related to societies and environments.
