Teaching Notes

Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

The students examine the development of rights for children in the 20th century.
They analyse a source to identify persuasive techniques such as modality, passive voice, audience and purpose. They develop appropriate questions to guide an inquiry using probing questions to seek more detail. A range of methods is used to gather historical evidence with the students selecting and recording key points and identifying and distinguishing fact and opinion.
The students develop persuasive texts for an opinion piece and cite sources to justify reasoning. In their writing, they contemplate attitudes and actions of the past and imagine what aspects of current society may be viewed in this way in the future.
The key concepts addressed in this lesson are sources, continuity and change, empathy and contestability.
