Developed by the History Teachers' Association of Australia, this website supports primary and secondary teachers in implementing the Australian Curriculum:history. Examine the "Teaching History" section for key principles of the disciplinary teaching of history. Sample units of work for different year levels align to topics in the Australian curriculum and provide a useful planning model as well as great teaching ideas.

Create Newspapers for history

Creating a classroom newspaper around a history topic is an authentic way to address both literacy and history outcomes.

Students can explore what life was like in a particular time and place, bringing together different aspects of life in newspaper stories and pictures. Pose questions about events, people, places, beliefs and attitudes during a particular period. Students gather evidence (primary or secondary sources) that answer their questions of inquiry. Using evidence students construct a historical narrative, report or explanation. Publish a classroom newspaper using student contributions.

This website has a range of free downloadable templates of newspapers. Classroom newspapers can be paper-based or published online.

Abstract: This article describes a project in which the reality of newspaper production was integrated into the language arts curriculum in a second-grade classroom. The class newspaper was produced in both hard copy and multimedia versions, using The Student Writing Center software and HyperStudio on a single classroom computer. The difficulties and successes of the project are described.

They're realistic and the best part, they are FREE! A great resource to use when writing news articles in the primary classroom.
