This resource for teaching a unit on World War One 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 an overview about the causes of the first world war and the reasons why men enlisted as soldiers. The workshop will particularly focus on the the Australian campaign in Gallipoli, the impact of the war on Australia, and how Australian service in the war is commemorated.
