Just for history teachers

I’ve been working with history teachers in one of my schools to develop resources that fit with the new 6-10 Literacy Continuum, which is due for release in a couple of weeks. The one I’ve attached is a visual literacy activity based around images of Pauline Hanson. It’s a nice contrast: I used the image of Pauline wrapped in the flag and contrasted it with a more recent cartoon where she’s just used as a shorthand for racist Australians.

The activity’s intended to support anyone who teaches an Australian people and events style of unit in year 10, so feel free to pass it on to any history teachers you know! Continuum Teaching Ideas History.
