Timeline

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.

Historypin | Home

I love the ways this idea could be used to develop historical understanding, and a sense of time and place, in the primary school.

 

Check out the video explaining what and how Historypin can be used, then go to the "schools" section for further information, activities, links and ideas.

A useful resource for exploring the journey and landing of the First Fleet. With an emphasis on the first impressions of European settlers of Aboriginals and the Aboriginals initial impressions of European settelers. 

 

Provides a strong Aboriginal perspective with an visual, audio and  transcript account of Aboriginal Artist Gordon Syron of the European landing:http://lrrpublic.cli.det.nsw.edu.au/lrrSecure/Sites/Web/13651/13657/convict_first_Aust_nw2.htm

 

Further stimulus to support learning about the initial landing of the first fleet and their interactions between the settlers and Aboriginals

http://aso.gov.au/titles/documentaries/first-australians-episode-1/clip2/

 

HSIE Lesson idea: Based on the First impressions of The Europeans of the First people (Aboriginals). This activity links students to historic sources such a journels, artworks and other writings that record the events upon arrival in Australia. This activity allows students to consider the thoughts, feeling and see from the persepctive of the Europeans arriving in a foreign, isolated land far away from England. Students could write a journal entry from a Europeans perspective about their arrival on Australian shores.The journalling activity links with English sylllabus writing outcomes as it requries students to write creatively recounting past events and expereinces. 

 

WS3.9 Produces a wide range of well-structured and well-presented literary and factual texts for a wide variety of purposes and audiences using increasingly challenging topics, ideas, issues and written language features. Particulary focusing on writing detailed descriptions and researched recounts

 

From these journal/diary entries the teacher could do 'hot seating,' where one of the studnets takes on the role of a European arrival and class members and the teacher asks questions about how they are feeling about the trip to Australia and arrival.

 

'Hot seating' can be a valuable learning tool for understanding "motives that underlie particular actions...also chang(ing) the dynamics in the classroom because the teacher is not providing an evaluative feedback loop." (Gibson and Ewing, 2011, p.56)

 

Assessment idea: Students are assessed on their ability to write a imagintive recount from an Aboriginals perspective, as thought they are sitting on the shore watching the European settlers arive. They will be required to relfect on Gordon's description of his artwork and the First Australian Video Clip, specifically focusing on what they think the Aboriginal people will be thinking and feeling. (Links with English outcomes mentioned abouve)
