Teaching Notes

Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

Students develop appropriate questions to guide an inquiry about people who have migrated to Australia.
They use a range of methods to gather relevant historical information including interviews, photos, documents and media coverage. Students recognise the importance of oral history. They use ethical methods to pose questions for an interview. Students record an oral history from within their family or community. They create a narrative recount as a scrapbook or digital multimedia story that records a migrant’s experience based on information from a range of sources and referring to real characters and events.
The key concepts addressed in this lesson are sources, significance and empathy.
