THE MURRAY-DARLING RIVER BASIN OF AUSTRALIA - PART 1 NATURAL WATER FLOWS

THE MURRAY-DARLING RIVER BASIN OF AUSTRALIA - PART 1 NATURAL WATER FLOWS

This is the first of a three part series on the Murray-Darling Basin of Australia. Part 1 has a focus on the physical geography of water resources, catchment areas and flows via a map and details. It also includes human elements - like the Exploration of Charles Sturt down the River Murray and the World Heritage site indicating a long human presence within the Basin. Each section has the inclusion of questions and worksheets supported by attachment pages in black and white or colour for your choice. This Basin is an important part of Aboriginal presence in the area which pre-dates the European presence. In a dry continent the resource of water is of critical significance. This opening unit will lead on to the second title - the modification of water within the Basin and then on to the third title which considers the Murray-Darling Basin Plan and the controversies over water management and distribution - issues raised during 2017.

The Education of Little Tree Reading Comprehension

The Education of Little Tree Reading Comprehension

‘Gramma said when you come on something good, first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find; that way, the good spreads out where no telling it will go. Which is right.’ Little Tree narrates his own story, the tale of a unique upbringing in the near-wilderness in the 1930’s with his Cherokee grandparents as loving teachers. ‘The Education of Little Tree’ by Forrest Carter is a book that many readers turn to again and again. It is suitable for students age 11 and up who are ready to read about a time and lifestyle that differ from their own, and are able to take an interest in larger, challenging themes of life (the passage of time, spiritual beliefs, the natural world, money and government affairs, history, etc.) This eBook contains reading comprehension sheets to go with the novel. (Still protected by copyright, the book must be purchased or borrowed separately.) For each chapter there are three short assignments: 1) to summarize a lesson learned from the chapter 2) to examine the language used in the chapter 3) to explain how a suggested ‘main theme’ is relevant to the chapter. WARNING: The story does not paint a flattering picture of the Christian religion, and students who are Christian should be prepared; parents should read the book first, to be sure that their student is ready for this material. It also contains swear words and references to drinking alcohol, among other mature themes. The novel is presented as an autobiography, but it is a work of fiction.

Essay Writing: Survival & Rescue

Essay Writing: Survival & Rescue

Compare and contrast! Here are two true stories of survival and rescue. With detailed guidelines suggesting how to proceed, the student will read the texts, choose an essay topic from several suggested, take notes, organise those notes, and write an essay. This assignment will take at least one week to complete. Stories: Tracks In The Bush An Australian ranch-worker goes missing, and three Europeans, along with six blacks, trek through the bush to rescue him. The tracking abilities of the blacks consistently astonish the narrator. He also describes the intense natural surroundings and the challenges, on a human level, that are faced by all involved. The Marvellous Ice-Drift of Captain Tyson This early attempt to reach the North Pole failed. The voyage nonetheless left its mark on history when the captain and crew were forced to abandon ship and live on an ice floe for 196 days in the middle of the Arctic winter. German sailors, an American cook, and a group of Inuit faced deadly conditions together. Under the leadership of Captain George E. Tyson, not one person perished. Note: To the best of my understanding the use of the word ‘black’ to refer to the indigenous peoples of Australia is preferable to them to the word ‘Aborigine’. Thus, the original term has been left unaltered in the text. If I am mistaken and have caused offense, please let me know! TIP! This may be a good choice for a student with an interest in outdoor adventures such as hiking, camping or rock-climbing.

The Secret River Revision Resource Pack 1

FIVE different activities to help students refresh their memories of the characters, events and quotations from The Secret River. These could be spread out over several lessons or combined into a couple. Students should have their own copies of the books, but there is no specific need for them here. I would suggest using these in the first week of revision. They are enjoyable, engaging, team activities with a bit of something for every learning style. Some notes on using the resources: Answers are provided for all of the quizzes on the same PPT. Cut up the dominoes beforehand because they are currently in the correct order. The pictures are taken from the TV mini-series, but should be obvious even if the students haven't seen it. The only ones who seem a little nondescript are Dan and Ned. Enjoy!

Australian identity - Representations of Indigenous Australians

Australian identity - Representations of Indigenous Australians

3 resources used in a 9 English unit. 1) A homework sheet which includes the poem 'Then and Now' by Oodgeroo Noonuccal and comprehension questions which are designed to help students begin to analyse the text. This poem touches on the dispossession of land and the consequences for the poet and her people. 2) A PowerPoint which teaches visual source analysis using the picture book 'The Rabbits' by John Marsden (illustrated by Shaun Tan). Students have to respond to the images by answering the following questions: What do you feel about the imagery? What does it mean to you? What is the idea of Australian identity portrayed in the picture? Afterwards, the PPT explains that this story is an allegory. The PowerPoint also includes some examples of Australian slang (as this is part of a stereotypes unit). 3) A PowerPoint which points out that for a long time there were “entrenched negative stereotypes” about Aboriginal people in Australia and how the media’s focus on negative Aboriginal issues creates much hurt when it presents the problems of individual Aboriginal people as problems of all Indigenous Australians. It explores the negative stereotypes about Indigenous people as shown in Bran Neu Dae and the positive attributes shown in The Sapphires. The clips I have selected from Bran Neu Dae are humorous but touch on serious issues and often generate good classroom discussions.

ABORIGINAL AND EUROPEAN SETTLEMENT IN THE COORONG OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

ABORIGINAL AND EUROPEAN SETTLEMENT IN THE COORONG OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Aboriginal groups occupied the Coorong area least 5000 years before European settlers arrived. Unlike most other Aboriginal groups in Australia the Coorong Aboriginal people were able to establish permanent campsites. The main area was at Parnka Point. This study will show the geographical advantage of this location - on the shores of the Coorong; within reach of the lakes; with easy access to the enclosing dunes that would later be named "The Younghusband Peninsula"; and with access to both fresh and salt water environments. The arrival of European settlers (began with Dr. Rankine in 1849) greatly impacted this Aboriginal way of life. Unlike the Aboriginal people who worked within the environment, the European settlers were environment modifiers. They converted natural bush-land into introduced cropland. They introduced new hard-hooved animals (cattle, horses, sheep) on to sensitive sandy areas. These animals damaged fresh water soaks - a major source of fresh water for Aboriginal groups. In addition the unintentional impact of European diseases devastated Aboriginal people. What had been a secure environment for Aboriginal people of the Coorong became untenable as their food gathering resources became restricted. Follow through this history which is, in essence, an example of cultural conflict. This unit is aimed at Secondary levels in Aboriginal Studies; Environmental studies and Geography.

WEST ARNHEM LAND (PART 10) - ECOTOURISM AND ABORGINAL ROCK ART

WEST ARNHEM LAND (PART 10) - ECOTOURISM AND ABORGINAL ROCK ART

This is the first of 3 units on West Arnhem Land Mount Borredaile area. Davidson Safari Lodge is the focus of ecotourism operations in West Arnhem Land. The 700 square kilometre land area has been leased from local Aboriginal people. It is a remote area of wilderness and can only be visited by those gaining permits from Aboriginal people. By map, photograph and description students will gain a sense of remoteness. Tours focus on ecotourism. The range of aboriginal art on rocks and caves in the area provide evidence of the long term association Aboriginal groups have had with the landscape. An awareness of environment, history and culture is shown in the rock art themes. The final two pages - one in colour and one in black and white - provide an opportunity for students to design their own pamphlet on the theme of this title. This unit can stand alone or it can be linked with the next two titles.

Neolithic Agricultural Revolution: Was it positive or negative- document based quest- lesson & Notes

Neolithic Agricultural Revolution: Was it positive or negative- document based quest- lesson & Notes Historical Content: At the end of the last Ice Age, around 8000 B.C.E, a major change took place. People began to plant and grow food on a regular basis. They also began to tame and keep animals as a source of meat, milk, and wool. The change from food gathering and hunting animals, to planting crops and taming animals is known as the Neolithic Agricultural Revolution, because it took place during the Neolithic Age. The Neolithic Age is the period of human history from 8000 to 4000 B.C.E. Some historians believe that this revolution was the single most important development in human history; others believe that this revolution was the downfall of mankind. Your Task: Use the documents provided for you, and your knowledge from class to determine whether the Neolithic Agricultural Revolution had an overall positive or negative impact on our species. Question: Neolithic Agricultural Revolution: The dawn of civilization or the downfall of man?

ARNHEM LAND PART 7 - CULTURAL CONTRASTS ON THE COBOURG PENINSULA WEST ARNHEM LAND

ARNHEM LAND PART 7 - CULTURAL CONTRASTS ON THE COBOURG PENINSULA WEST ARNHEM LAND

This unit follows on from ARNHEM LAND PART 6c which has a focus on the establishment of the settlement of Victoria in the Cobourg Peninsula of West Arnhem Land. Using labelled photographs and a table indicating contrasts between the long term association of Aboriginal clans with the land, this unit provides materials that help answer the question about the very short term survival of the British colonial settlement. It indicates that the close association Aboriginal people had with the environment made their survival more secure than the British settlers who appeared on lands used by Aboriginal people. There are many reasons to include in answering the set question on page 6. This page is provided as a black and white attachment for hard copy provision. Question and debate the issue of survival.

ARNHEM LAND PART 6C -HISTORY OF THE FAILED BRITISH COLONIAL SETTLEMENT OF VICTORIA

This history unit takes students to the attempted colonial settlement of Victoria on the shores of Port Essington in Arnhem Land. It can stand alone as a colonial history unit for Australia (Oceania) but a more comprehensive understanding will be gained by linking it with other units of the Arnhem Land series - in particular the Unit 7 which has a focus on survival in the Cobourg Peninsula West Arnhem Land. Take the walk (via map, description and photographs) among the ruins of Victoria settlement and gain some understanding of the problems faced by the settlers who came to this remote frontier region. 3 attachment black and white pages are given with information and questions. These can be provided in hard copy for student use in class or set as homework activities. It is an intriguing history and leads on to unit 7 which revisits the reasons for abandonment and contrasts the culture of Aboriginal people and European settlers to provide reasons for the survival of Aboriginal groups in an environment where a British settlement failed. Your students should enjoy the walk into the history.
