Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

"Go Back to where you came from: school pack", is a resource that was designed by SBS to align with the Australian school curriculum. It provides information to teachers and students about refugees and asylum seekers and supplies activities that can be used in the classroom.

Also, it is useful for simplifying the concepts of refugees  and asylum seekers as these need to be defined for students to understand.

Faith Fashion Fusion: Immigration Museum

Faith Fashion Fusion: Immigration Museum | Humanities 1 | Scoop.it
Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

"Faith Fashion Fusion" is a temporary exhibition on display at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne, Australia. It examines the identities of Muslim women through fashion and their beliefs.

 

It illustrates the different dress styles that have been created by fashion designers and retailers who have designed dresses for Muslim Women.

 

I believe this is a great exhibition, that would help eliminate any negative stereotypes of Muslim women as it portrays their culture in an attractive fashion. It would be best suited for the topic of geography as it displays the dress codes of women coming from different cultural backgrounds.

These miniature toys illustrate the different cultures that exist around the world. I admire how colourful it appears, as it welcomes the idea of friendly play.

School Economics

School Economics | Humanities 1 | Scoop.it
Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

This video clip presented discusses the Australian government's decision to teach school economics in primary schools. The reasons for this is to educate students who how to make smart money choices before they are required to do so as adults.

 

As a beginning, pre-service primary teacher I believe this is a smart decision as it will result in less world bank crashes. It is a very important concept that needs to be taught as it will affect each adult's handling of their own money.

Australian of the Year Awards

Australian of the Year Awards | Humanities 1 | Scoop.it
Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

Akram Azimi was nominated as Young Australian of the year in Western Australia in 2013.

 

He was awarded for his efforts of mentoring young Indigenous people in disadvantaged, remote Indigenous communities. He is recognised for his True Blue Dreaming Project which aims to help indigenous people and his initiative to mentor a special olympics athelete to spread awareness of disability issues.

 

I people that primary school teachers should present such stories to their students to inspire them to give service to the general Australian community. This would motivate them to do better with their academic studies in order to serve Australian society.

Sorry, Kevin Rudd's Apology to "The stolen Generation"

http://ten.com.au/ten/tv_videos.html Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says sorry to the stolen generations
Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

Former prime minister Kevin Rudd's apology speech to the indigenous Australian confesses the wrongs of the Australian nation in regards to the Stolen Generation and the indigenous peoples.

 

It acknowledges that Aborigine and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original owners of the land and their right to be given equal opportunities in terms of health, education and economics like any other Australian.

 

Educators should view this clip to acknowledge the Australian government's perception of Aborigine people. It will inform their thoughts about indigenous people by recognising the wrongs of previous Australian governments and the everlasting effects it has caused on the Aborigine and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Rabbit Proof Fence - Stolen Generations

Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

"Rabbit Proof fence" directed by Phillip Noyce depicts the stolen generation which occured in Australia in the 1900s. 

 

The three children portrayed in the film are captured by the Australian government agencies and taken to a Native Settlement which aimed to eliminate any signs of indigeneous heritage from the children. Three of them managed to escape to their home, but sadly one was recaptured and taken back to the settlement.

 

Teachers may decide to watch this film with their class to educate them about the Stolen Generation. If not appropriate for them, then they can extract images or snippets from the film to explain the main concepts of the Stolen Generation.

Values Education | National Framework: Nine Values for Australian Schooling | Humanities 1 | Scoop.it
Nine Values for Australian Schooling
Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

Values are required in education as provides informed thoughts about curricular subject areas.

 

Through my own personal research, I discovered that Australian schools are required to abide by nine values  to educate their students.

 

I have noted these  with my own schooling in Australia and on my teaching rounds. I noted three values in practice. These included: Doing your best, Respect, Understanding, Tolerance and Inclusion.

 

I find these values to be important for making Australia as a friendly, multi cultural society that is respective  and tolerant towards all races. This is extremely crucial for the successful development of our economy.

Who’s next door?: Immigration Museum

Who’s next door?: Immigration Museum | Humanities 1 | Scoop.it
Experience a racist incident through the eyes of everyone involved. How would you react?
Fatimah Sheriffdeen's insight:

""Who's next door?" is a clip posted by the Discovery Centre that is part of the Immigration Museum. It illustrates a racist incident to cause the viewers to recognise the effects of racial difference to the general public.

 

It also provides viewpoints of the victim, perpetrator and bystanders who witnessed this incident. 

 

I believe this clip would be good for teachers to use, to illustrate the occurences of racist situations. They can use it to inform the students that racist attitudes are not tolerated in Australia as it has become a multi cultural society with a variety of races and cultures.

This booklet consists of 9 units, broken down into student activities, teachers' notes and videoclips that illustrate consumer related scenarios. References to VELS Level 4 Economics and the National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework have also been made in each unit.

 

I believe this would be a great resource for educators to use in their classrooms as it provides plentiful information about economics.
