Learning Activity Overview


Your work for this assignment will be presented as a display at an expo. Each team will have to prepare a booth which your classmates will be visiting to learn about your specific area of History. When visiting the various booths, you will have activities to participate in based on the information displayed.
Each team will be researching a specific area of Australian History. Although the topics will be different, every team must include the following:
  1. A detailed overview of your area of interest. This should include information about what happened, where it happened and the impact on society both then and now. This information should be presented in a dynamic way and include a thoughtful mix of written and visual material.
  2. Activities for visitors to your display to participate in. These activities are only limited by your imagination but should be engaging and informative whilst also testing your classmates’ knowledge of your area of focus.
  3. An analysis of the way in which at least FOUR sources (both primary and secondary) presented the topic in question. You can locate books in the library or jump on the internet and find newspaper articles, cartoons and photographs which represent the event. From whose perspective is the story being told from and how do we know? How does this affect the way people view the topic? Is there any bias present and if so, why do you think this may be?
  4. A product that directly relates to your area of history. Again, this product is only limited by your imaginations. If you are stuck for ideas, why not consider making a model, designing some costumes, re-enacting an historical event, creating an animated film or designing a webpage…
