Irini Kassidis's curator insight, November 2, 2013 10:34 PM

An excellent resource for educators to use in their lesson planning.

Geoffrey King's curator insight, April 11, 2014 9:58 PM

A great resource to explain the origins of English culture and language of Australia.

 

Claire Reinthal's curator insight, April 20, 2015 5:42 AM

 

 

Description of what is on this site:

 

Directed and produced by Rachel Perkins, an Arrernte woman from Central Australia, First Australians, specifically Episode 1, excellently  'explains changes in the community and family life' experienced by the Aboriginal peoples at the time of the arrival of the First Fleet and beyond. This episode 'evaluates the effects of these' changes 'on individuals' such as Bennelong. The information at http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/discover_collections/history_nation/terra_australis/education/bennelong/bennelong_extracts.pdf could prove a useful follow-up resource. This is one of the resources selected using selection criteria such as whether the creator of the work is Aboriginal.

 

The effects of these changes on groups of Aboriginal people are illustrated, such as those experienced by the Aboriginal people of Warang (Sydney). It also enables the audience to evaluate the effects of these changes on 'environments' due to British settlement. Allen Madden from the Gadigal Clan, talking of Captain Philip, explains that "...immediately he orders trees to be chopped down and land to be cleared..." (Perkins, 2008).

 

 

A teaching idea:

 

Children could be asked to write down what stands out to them as they watch the episode, after which time they pair and share and then share their partners response with the class. Teacher can display mind-map of ideas on interactive whiteboard and students can research one of the first Australians mentioned in the episode and present some of the ideas in the mind map in relation to CCS2.2, from the perspective of that first Australian.

 

 

An idea for an assessment task:

 

In order to assess the learning of the students on how well they can fulfill the HSIE outcome CCS2.2, perhaps after giving them a few lessons to research the changes and their impacts, I would ask them to write a speech from the perspective of a particular Aboriginal person or group. 

 

 

Literacy strategy/links to English KLA:

 

This could also fulfill some of the outcomes for the English K-6 Syllabus such as EN2-6B in that writing a speech requires students to 'distinguish between different forms of English' as they 'plan and deliver short presentations'.

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 27, 2013 5:46 AM

In my opinion this book can be a helpful as it can help me build my knowledge in the area of history. With knowledge comes power; if i feel confident enough with the subject i will be more comfortable with teaching it to my future students. As a student It would be a beneficial resource as it links to other principles such as the 3 fundamental that are mentioned. Knowing how childern acknowledge and learn the concept of 'history' is quite interesting. 

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 29, 2013 7:21 AM

As soon as I saw this I knew I'd found my last scoop. These simple three steps will help me greatly when teaching Humanities. Going even further, the book 'How Students Learn' is also very useful as it provides an overview of the best ways to teach history in the classroom. Obviously one of the most important things when teaching is teaching with understanding, and that has been emphasised in all three steps. I think I'd use this frequently in my teaching because by having these steps I would be able to keep focused on the end result (gives me continual guidance). I also know it's from a reliable resource - Catherine Smyth being an experienced primary educator herself.
