Understanding and Teaching the Australian Geography Curriculum for Primary Schools is designed to ease the burden of primary teachers by showing them how to understand and use the curriculum they are being asked to teach. Features of the book include: By unpacking the Australian Curriculum: Geography in terms of that non-geographers can easily understand, this book takes work out of standards-aligned geography instruction, proving that geography is an interesting and important subject which imparts essential understandings and skills and contributes to the personal and social development of young children.

The Geographical Association (2013) is a website with the objective of furthering geographical knowledge and understanding through education. Teachers, students, tutors, and academics across all levels of education are supported through journals, publications, training events, projects, websites and by lobbying government about the importance of geography. The site has links to teacher supports and resources that are available for immediate download. Although based in the UK, the supports are useful to the Australian perspective; particularly for supporting the curriculum in understanding world perceptions.
