The Story of Australia - Part Two
The National History Curriculum recommends the use of 'story' as a key strategy for developing young people's historical thinking. Research has shown that young learners grapple with the past in much the same way as historians, they make sense of it by analysing, ordering and linking events in narrative form.
The Story of Australia CD-Roms are interactive computer based teaching and learning resources that provide students with the necessary historical knowledge, understanding and skills required to fully meet the Achievement Standards of the National History Curriculum at Years 4, 5, 6, 9 and 10.
The program provides a valuable resource for busy teachers who may not necessarily have trained as historians, taking the hard work out of researching multiple complex periods of Australian history.
The 16 parts of the program are on 4 CD-ROMs for Windows and Macintosh computers and can be purchased individually. Also available on Video.
The narration and drawings ensure the success of the program in arousing and sustaining student's interest in the history of their country.
Teachers' guides and lesson Plans have been prepared for each part. Objectives:
