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.

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'.

Australian Aborigines existed in almost total isolation for at least 60,000 years. They had no written history so only fragments of Dreamtime stories, cave paintings and etchings ramain to record their remarkable past. Only in the last few decades has a systemic investigation revealed the rich and complex culture that they possessed

How Students Learn: History in the Classroom

How Students Learn: History in the Classroom | History resources | Scoop.it

Decades of educational and cognitive research has found that there are 3 fundamental principles of learning. These 3 principles should underpin the  approach we take in teaching history in the primary classroom:

 

1. Students come to the classroom with preconceptions about how the world works. We need to engage primary students' initial understanding.

2. To develop competence in historical inquiry, students must a) have a deep foundation of factual knowledge; b) understand facts and ideas in the context of a conceptual framework, and c) organise knowledge in ways that facilitate retrieval and application.

3. A metacognitive (reflective) approach helps students learn to take control and monitor their learning

 

This book builds on this research and explores how these principles can be applied in teaching history in the primary classroom.

I highly recommend this book.

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.

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

7 Useful YouTube Channels for History Teachers | History resources | Scoop.it

One of my favorite things about Netflix streaming is that I can watch some great history documentaries on my laptop or tablet. As much as I enjoy a good documentary I also know that not everyone does. I also know that many students get bored by documentaries very quickly. On the other hand, short video clips can be helpful to help teachers illustrate a point or present a point in a different manner. If you're a history teacher, particularly a U.S. History teacher, here are seven YouTube channels where you can find some good short video clips to use in your lessons.
