How To Teach A Great Unit on Making A Nation
This resource for teaching a unit on the Movement of Peoples is designed to provide teachers with engaging strategies and materials for meeting the requirements of the Year 9 Australian Curriculum. The resource will cover strategies and materials for teaching European settlement in Australia and its impact. The workshop will particularly focus on the nature of contact between settlers and indigenous Australians, the conditions of non-Europeans in Australia prior to 1901 and how democracy in Australia was shaped. Teachers will be shown ways that they can introduce students to the use of historical sources and conventions, and incorporate the use of ICT, including web 2.0 tools, into students’ response to the unit.
