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!

Popular culture is currently the only Year 10 unit here (Sept 2013), but surely more will come...?
