A survey to gather how the resource is going in your school

Owning our History
A teaching resource for NSW history syllabus Stage 2; First Contact and Stage 4; Contact History and Stage 5 Core Depth Study, Changing Rights & Freedoms. 

These guides aim to provide insights and materials to assist teachers new to the subject in addressing what can be suggested as the little known history around first contact and the conflicts that occurred across Australia between those living in Australia and those coming to Australia from the 1770’s.

It is inspired by the research work of Henry Reynolds, the acclaimed historian and many others working for social justice with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. It further aims to address the nature and impact of these encounters and challenge us to question our frontier history and consider:

Were there ‘wars’ between the first Australians and the Colonists?
Should we ‘own’ our history and regard the key figures amongst the First Australians who fought to safeguard and preserve their people, land and cultures as heroes?
The themes are drawn from relevant content areas identified in the Australian Curriculum, History K-10.
