I like this because it says to students that if you find something useful you need to understand why. Making them annotated is a great way of doing this and if you can use tech to help you do it then great!

Much like the Magellan song - another good animation

Taryn Coxall's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:05 PM

This is a fun (somewhat strange) but more engaging resource to help teach younger years australian history. It is clear that todays generations are much more inclined ot watch a video or listen to  a song than ready a book, and from experience they are not worried about quality or subject.. they will iterally watch anything. I belive this video will be a great introductary resource for beggining to teach history to primary students and something that they will remember rather than go in one ear andout the other.

Alfred’s War is a powerful story that unmasks the lack of recognition given to Australian Indigenous servicemen who returned from the WWI battlelines. Alfred was just a young man when he was injured and shipped home from France. Neither honoured as a returned soldier or offered government support afforded to non-Indigenous servicemen, Alfred took up […]

Are we killing students' creativity in school? They have assigned seats and assigned groups. They must seek permission to go to the toilet or get a drink. The entire day of a student is filled with numerous acts of compliance and few opportunities for creativity.

PETAA Paper 178 Writing persuasive texts

PETAA Paper 178 Writing persuasive texts | Teaching Primary School | Scoop.it

Essay by Penny Hutton to explore the broader context, structural features and assessment of persuasive texts...

By the Middle Ages rhetoric had become a university discipline and the emphasis was shifting from skills in oracy to skills in writing.

 Today the ability to use language skilfully and precisely to persuade and influence others continues to be highly valued within our language repertoire. This paper will consider how students can be supported to create and interpret a variety of persuasive texts.

" Many links to AC English and AC History when reading/writing persuasive texts..."The ability to use language to influence an audience has been highly valued for many centuries. In classical Roman and Greek civilisations the capacity to use spoken language to influence an audience was known as ‘rhetoric’ (literally meaning the ‘art of an orator’) and considered the most important attribute of an educated man."

Maree Whiteley's curator insight, December 8, 2014 8:26 PM

A powerful tool in any classroom...."Storytelling is the oldest form of teaching. It bonded the early human communities, giving children the answers to the biggest questions of creation, life, and the afterlife. Stories define us, shape us, control us, and make us. Not every human culture in the world is literate, but every single culture tells stories...." HIStory, HERstory, OURstory...hearing stories, reading stories and writing stories...an essential element in every classroom!
