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.

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!

This looks super cool.  A much simplified version of PowerPoint and might be more intuitive for many of you.  Give it a try and let me know if you like this.

The Chinese New Year is known as the Spring Festival, the most important festival in Chinese culture. If someone would like  to know something about the Chinese culture, the Chinese New Year must be the first target to know.

Laura Aurisch's curator insight, March 16, 2013 1:58 AM

This video is a great Stage 3 resource because it can be used as a visual and audio tool to introduce students to the Eureka Stockade, through explanation of the Eureka flag and the creation of Australia's democracy.

 

Many conflicting viewpoints exist surrounding different issues of the Eureka stockade, such as the debatable topic of whether Victoria was already on the path to democracy or whether the Eureka Stockade corrected Victoria's political course? The actor states “history tells us they lost the battle. Legend tells us they set Australia on the path to democracy”. Regardless which viewpoint is held, the Eureka Stockade battle caused political change replacing the miner's licence with the miner's right to vote.

This video could be used to lead discussion points such as

how and why societies develop rules/licences/taxes

what is a democracy

the importance of representation

 

After watching the video, a lesson plan may involve students describing what they believe the miners meant by their “their rights and liberties”. This could then be compared to the Ballarat Reform League charter (retrievable from: http://www.ballaratreformleague.org.au/) and current international human rights (retrievable from: http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml).

 

The main idea of this site is to initiate the concept of the effect on today's society of the Eureka Stockade legacy of political change and Australia's identity of being a country that promotes a “fair go”.

"It's hard to contain my excitement and enthusiasm when it comes to Guided Reading and having a 1:1 classroom. Mastery of district curriculum and essential objectives is what it is all about. I now have unlimited opportunities for students in my classroom.  Our guided reading block is every afternoon for an hour.  Differentiation of instruction, individualized and small group instruction, and student engagement happens at its best on a daily basis! I feel I am meeting all students' instructional needs each day."

"Most teachers and current textbooks offer varied approaches to the material to be learned so the teaching can be brain-compatible with the varied student learning styles. It is only logical that respect for these individual learning styles be incorporated into assessment forms."

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.

Ruby Day's curator insight, February 14, 2014 3:45 PM

Sounds like some great ideas to stimulate critical thinking

Audrey's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:51 PM

All 5 assessment methods involves  students leading the learning. Asking the students questions based on their reading of the topic helps their analytical  skills and allows them to be in charge of their learning.
