Teaching Notes

Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

In this lesson, students undertake an investigation of their local community, identifying important aspects of change and continuity over the years. An example of the historical inquiry process is modelled in the video ‘Madi investigates Croydon’, which students may follow and/or critique. The video should be paused intermittently to discuss the investigative process that Madi follows. Students then work in groups to identify their research question, locate sources and gather information, analyse and draw conclusions from their data and find a way to communicate what they have learned with others. A final activity might involve creating a shared book or display of their research to share with their wider school or local community.

Focus Question

How has my community changed? How has it stayed the same?
