Women in Water: A History of Incredible Female Swimmers (Photo Gallery)

Women in Water: A History of Incredible Female Swimmers (Photo Gallery) | PPSL | Scoop.it
In 2013, on her fifth attempt and at age 64, endurence swimmer Diana Nyad emerged on the shores of Key West, Florida after swimming 110 miles from Havana, Cuba in 53 hours. It was the first time a person ever accomplished the passage without a shark cage or flippers.  
Nyad had attempted the journey four times before, first in 1978, and is a walking--well, swimming--example of the importance of being resilient enough to never give up, no matter what age.

Amina: Through My Eyes - the second in a powerful and moving fiction series about children living in contemporary conflict zones

Amina: Through My Eyes - the second in a powerful and moving fiction series about children living in contemporary conflict zones | PPSL | Scoop.it

The series "Through My Eyes invites young readers to enter the fragile worlds of children living in contemporary war zones. Every day in an increasing number of countries, children are desperately trying to survive as their families and their whole way of life is destroyed by war. This new series is a tribute to such children and the themes of courage, determination, triumph and perseverance will inspire, challenge and engage young readers, creating greater cross cultural understanding and informed empathy.

Several stories set in the World Wars have been written for younger readers but very little has been published about more contemporary conflicts and those within Asian settings. War affects the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the boy or girl and these stories will appeal to all readers." (www.throughmyeyesbooks.com.au)

 

These guides support use of each Through My Eyes book in Years 5-8 classrooms. The comprehensive guides, linked to the Australian curriculum, feature rich links to web pages and digital content, so are best viewed online, but may be printed.

Global Education Project, Victoria's curator insight, December 2, 2013 7:42 PM

This series is inspiring and powerful.

 

The unique cultural setting and multiplicity of contemporary global themes presented in these stories have strong relevance for the development of the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the following General Capabilities, particularly through the use of Inquiry Learning:
Intercultural understanding
Personal and social capability
Ethical understanding
Critical and creative thinking
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capability


Some of the stories are set in the Asian region supporting the Cross-curriculum priority of Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and the development of ‘Asia literacy’. The opportunity to explore country and place, people, identity and culture ensures the relevance of this text for inclusion in the Geography and History learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.

 

The website provides a range of support material for middle years teachers.
