The Australian Curriculum v3.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures

The Australian Curriculum v3.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures | History Resources and Ideas for the "Here and Now" Classroom | Scoop.it

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, rich and diverse. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Identity is central to this priority and is intrinsically linked to living, learning Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, deep knowledge traditions and holistic world view.

A conceptual framework based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ unique sense of Identity has been developed as a structural tool for the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures within the Australian curriculum. This sense of Identity is approached through the interconnected aspects of Country/Place, People and Culture. Embracing these elements enhances all areas of the curriculum.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.

Primary teachers need to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their teaching. Use the ideas in this website to frame planning.

Clare O'Connor's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:32 AM

This is going to be a Cross-curricular priority, so I thought it useful to add for our RMLP teachers and in-house education providers.

Greta Brewin's curator insight, October 31, 2013 3:17 AM

I thought it would be a really helpful resource to store a direct link to the cross-curriculum priorities page on the ACARA website. This links to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories and cultures cross-curricular priority information page. As teachers you need to link you lesson and unit plans to the Australian Curriculum, and anything that falls under this priority can be justified as a viable learning outcome, because of the priority. Which I think is great, students and teachers need to learn about our indigenous history.

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.

AC History Units presents 8 units developed by the History Teachers' Association of Australia to support teachers in the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: History ...A major goal has been to provide the conceptual background (in Unit 1) and concrete examples (in Units 2-8) to assist teachers in designing their own programs and learning sequences for other topics and year levels.

AC History Units is a website created by the History Teachers' Association of Australia. The site contains 8 units developed to support the implementation of the new history section of the Australian Curriculum. The site also aims to help history teachers to design their own history units and learning sequences. As a history teacher, this is the jackpot! It is full of wonderful lessons from great units, which are already linked to the AusVELS and deemed age appropriate. Half the work of lesson and unit planning is done for you. This is an excellent resource to hold onto!

 

Robert Kidd's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:01 AM

Major Thomas Anderson Kidd served with the 10th Light Horse in Gallipoli and Egypt, was wounded and became seriously ill with Cholera.

 

He wrote diaries which he embellished with maps and diagrams. He was Mentioned in Despatches for gallantry in May & August 1915 and he suggested Hugo Throssell get the Victoria Cross at Hill 60.

 

I edited a transcript of Tom’s re-written diary and began to understand his frustration with the foolishness of some orders and the impossibility of many aspects of the campaigns that he was involved in.

 

In my extensive reading I have found these words have been used to describe him; cool, calm, fair, caring, splendid, brave, fearless, reckless, bullet proof & the men even considered him bomb proof!

 

These men and their families obviously had a life both before & after their war service and I am interested in all facets; particularly the affect war had on them.

 

My book "Uncle Tom's Diary" is a young adult novella about the discovery of one of his diaries ... and secrets!

Kaartdijin Noongar - Sharing Noongar Culture

Kaartdijin Noongar - Sharing Noongar Culture | History Resources and Ideas for the "Here and Now" Classroom | Scoop.it

 

Kaartdijin in Noongar means 'knowledge'. Noongar people have resided in the south-west of Western Australia for more than 45,000 years. The aim of the Kaartdijin website is to share the richness of our knowledge, culture and history in order to strengthen our community and promote wider understanding.

Before teaching Aboriginal history or culture, teachers should consult with their local Aboriginal community. This excellent website, produced by the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council, contains a range of resources and information relating to the Noongar community. Noongar country covers the entire south-western portion of Western Australia. The website features protocols and policies, maps and information about Noongar culture and history.

Catherine Smyth's curator insight, May 21, 2013 12:37 AM

Timelines are a way to organise historical information. However, dates alone do not allow students to vlsualise the time being referred to. Dipity is a useful tool to help students associate their visual images of history with the corresponding dates. Timelines should be comparative to help students see what life was life for a range of people at a given time.

Understanding historical time includes two important aspects: 1) chronology which is being able to order moments in time; and 2) being able to match moments in time to specific dates. Research suggests children find it easier to sequence historical pictures than assign dates or names to historical periods (Barton, 1994,2002; Barton and Levstik, 1996).

As children get older, they become better at ordering historical pictures on the basis of clues in technology, fashion and social roles. Primary children know what dates sound like and usually know what the current year is, but they find it difficult to associate periods in history with specific years.
