Why teach all Australian kids about the Stolen Generations?
Teaching Australian children about the Stolen Generations provides a great opportunity to:
- understand the past government aim of assimilation
- consider the long-term impact of a detrimental government policy
- develop an insight into the need for the formal apology
- see the need for reconciliation with Australia’s First Nations people.
A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources
The content in this poster addresses the cross-curricular priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture. It could also be used to guide conversations with your students on National Sorry Day.
