The content of Your Turn aligns closely with several Learning Areas in the Middle Years Band of South Australia’s current curriculum.
Your Turn classroom strategies for safer, greener, more active travel incorporate an explicit focus on Curriculum Scope, principally through the Learning Area of Health and physical education in the South Australian Curriculum Standards and Accountability (SACSA) Framework.
The teaching and learning content encourages an integrated approach to planning and knowledge building, based on the principles of constructivism. It requires the implicit inclusion of skills development in information literacy and information and communication technologies (ICTs); and a cross-curricular emphasis on environmental sustainability and indigenous content.
