A day with many meanings...Australia Day is celebrated across the nation with a public holiday each year on January 26.  It marks the day in 1788 that the First Fleet arrived in Sydney Cove and that British sovereignty was proclaimed. Watch the following video where four Australians — Lex, Nathan, Jess, and Mohamed — describe their thoughts and feelings about Australia Day.

Reflections on Australia Day | A 5/6 Learning Journey

Reflections on Australia Day | A 5/6 Learning Journey | History | Scoop.it

This week, we reflected on what Australia Day means to us. We started by watching a series of video clips about what others thought about the meaning of Australia Day. You can watch them here. We thought about these clips in two different ways: What is familiar to me and what feelings or experiences expressed might I share?    and

What challenged my thinking?After we talked about this, we each created our own reflections about Australia Day. Here are some of our ideas …

Women's Suffrage Photographs | Teachinghistory.org | History | Scoop.it

How did the women's suffrage movement use the rise of journalism to its advantage? TJ Boisseau introduces photographs that show how suffragists staged protests with the press in mind. The photographs also reveal suffragists' debt to techniques used by striking women workers, the influence of new young leaders, and the racism that plagued the suffrage movement (and society at large).

A great resource for Women's History Month...What we have here are many photos of women publicly demonstrating. There are probably 200 articles about women demonstrating in public between 1900, 1910 and 1915. That's a good chunk, and a lot for historians to draw on.

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 28, 2013 8:28 PM

The Immigration Museum offers many education programs and resources to teachers and students. Finding relevant information for your year level is easy, and they also have a section for teacher professional development. Quick Links on the website include resources on discovery programs, talking faiths, books and journals and video activities. Having access to these relevant resources will allow me to further my own education as well as that of my students. The Immigration Museum is a great place to go for an excursion as immigration in Australia is a huge topic - with our population being so multicultural due to overseas immigrants.

In this lesson students will read the text ‘The Rabbits’ written by John Marsden and then analyse the very detailed illustrations by Shaun Tan. ‘The Rabbits’ follows the story of the European settlement in Australia but uses Rabbits representing the Europeans and Possums representing the Aboriginals. Students will describe what they see in the picture, discuss if any illustrations have a deeper meaning (symbolism) as well as make connections to their own lives.

The Stolen Generations Lesson - English and History - Australian Curriculum Lessons | History | Scoop.it

Summary: This lesson is an attempt at creating empathy for the Mothers who had their children forcibly removed. It was originally designed for a Year 8 English Class but could also be adapted for other year levels and other Curriculum Areas, specifically History. It also covers Cross-curriculum priorities. This lesson has been tested and has worked extremely well. It can be quite emotionally challenging for the Teacher and the students

Year 5 and Year 6 AC History- stories of immigration explored through Drama and role-play. 

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 29, 2013 6:53 AM

Drama is an excellent way of teaching historical events as it forces the student to become the character in the situation. This resource outlines how the drama process could work in a Humanities lesson on immigration (as it was inspired by the Immigration Museum). It includes focus questions as well as goes through the history of settlement in Australia. I think this is an inspiring resource because it's innovative and engaging for the students. I'd use this drama resource in conjunction with other resources (such as videos, images, texts, etc) when teaching about this topic in my classroom.

Jandamarra-Mark Greenwood. Teachers Notes

Jandamarra-Mark Greenwood. Teachers Notes | History | Scoop.it

‘Burrudi yatharra thirrili ngarra’

We are still here and strong. Jandamarra was an Indigenous hero...whose white ‘bosses’ called him Pigeon. He knew in his heart that the country was inscribed by powerful spirits in the contours of its landscape.The Wandjinas created the land and sky. They also created the spirits that swim in the water soaks and sacred places. Pigeon couldn't see them, but these spirits visited his dreams. Jandamarra's story is an epic and tragic tale which Mark Greenwood has re-told in a simple and yet majestic style, accompanied by Terry Denton’s vibrantly graphic, illustrative interpretation. This is a creative re-imagining of the life of an extraordinary man and of a seminal time in Australia’s history.The reverberations of the events known as the ‘frontier wars’ are still being felt more than one hundred years later and will continue to have an impact on our national psyche.

Jandamarra and his people are still here, and they are still strong.

This book might be studied in lower and upper primary, and also lower secondary classrooms. It is relevant in Australian Curriculum: English; History and The Arts. Also fabulous links to the Cross Curriculum Priority: Aboriginal histories and culture. Jandamarra could also be used to explore such themes as...National Heroes, Indigenous History and Culture,Frontier Wars, Magic and Spiritual Power, Kinship and Community and Values such as: Bravery and Justice

Taryn Coxall's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:10 PM

This is a book i have found that many teachers are using in both upper and lower primary in order to teach students Australian History.  The book foccuses on the life of a man in a seminal time in Australian History a foccusing on the Jandamarra people. I belive this would be a fantastic resource to use in the classroom, especially for upper primary students who are starting to do pursuasive writing a book responces. This book will enage students as well as giving them insight into life as a "Jadamarra person, and therefore how we have evolved and changed thorughout history. 

This particular link gives a wide range of teachers notes and questions that can be used in the classroom with this book. Which is clearly a great resource for teachers to have when approaching basing a lesson on this book.
