Caitlin Barker's curator insight, April 12, 2013 9:17 PM

This is an excellent unit of work based around British Colonisation to be used before and after a visit to Sydney Tower to explore the heritage. The whole document is excellent in terms of providing teach plans and associated activities, however the focus for learning about the voyage of James Cook in relation to British colonialisation at the time will be on "Lesson 3" in the document. It describes the outcomes assessed, the resources needed for the lesson, any pre-requisites a progression of the lesson. Specific enquiry questions are posed for each lesson which help students in knowing what they are expected to gain from the end of the lesson. The activity provided is that student's read through the provided fact sheets and they are to fill in the storyboard with events in his voyage and draw what plants and animals he may have encountered. The excursion is not entirely necessary, but from my experience, some students have never been into the City so it would be a good experience to see all the aspects of his voyage and perhaps where the Aboriginals were living. The activity of creating the storyboard can encapsulate aspects of the Creative Arts syllabus and comprehension of the information.fact sheets can address some English reading outcomes. What is not provided is an assessment task to fully gauge students learning, so perhaps a cloze passage or short quiz could be created to encapsulate the main enquiry questions and the main ideas that students should still remember at the end of the unit such that they should not just be regurgitating the information from the fact sheets as we would rather them be able to apply and remember the information in the future.

17th century London visualized

"Six students from De Montfort University have created a stellar 3D representation of 17th century London, as it existed before The Great Fire of 1666. The three-minute video provides a realistic animation of Tudor London, and particularly a section called Pudding Lane where the fire started. As Londonist notes, “Although most of the buildings are conjectural, the students used a realistic street pattern [taken from historical maps] and even included the hanging signs of genuine inns and businesses” mentioned in diaries from the period."

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, November 8, 2013 2:53 AM

London in the 1700's was a chacterised by buildings that were very tighly packed together with obviously little fire code. There buildings are similiar to other communities thrughout Europe and areas in Switzerland. This remake of the past gives the student an animated journey into an  England that once was before the fire. It appears preindustrial revolution and shows how the economy was run by individual businesses and markets, its always interesting to look into the past and see the way the same cities exist today. Most importantly we learn and have the best fire codes possible

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 16, 2013 11:24 AM

For someone who loves history as much as i do this was a real treat. It honest makes you feel as if you could hop on a plane and travel there right now. Also as someone who has walked the streets of london you can see glimpses of these times within the architechture and the city planning. Great video really makes me nostalgic for a time in which was way before myself.
