Product Description
While very suitable for the regular classroom, the Achieve! series of History titles has been written at a literacy level that is appropriate for secondary school students who, because of poor reading skills, may struggle with regular classroom materials.
This title focuses on how rights and freedoms have been ignored, demanded or achieved in Australia and in the broader world context during the 20th century. The struggle for autonomy and civil rights for Indigenous Australian peoples are explored through events like the Freedom Rides, the Mabo case and National Sorry Day. Students will consider the rights and roles of Indigenous Australians today through activities that celebrate their culture but also ask: Where are we now?
In the broader world context, students learn about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and draw comparisons between the civil rights movement in the United States and concurrent events in Australia.
The CD-ROM contains all the pages that are featured in the book, as well as a file of illustrations that can be used in other work sheets. These files can be easily edited to suit the needs of the students.
