January 26 provides us with the impetus for classroom discussions and activities about Australian history, culture and identity. Itâ€™s easy to steam ahead with a celebration of all things â€œgreen, gold and sausage rolledâ€. However, as teachers, itâ€™s important to acknowledge our individual contribution to how our nationâ€™s histories are told and to how our students come to identify what makes Australian culture â€œAustralianâ€.
Join me for lots of ideas for presenting a rounded exploration of Australia Day and its history from varied perspectives, as well as some alternative ways to commemorate the day.
Join us in our new For the Love of Teaching Facebook group, where we chat about the podcast, feature live vids of guests, and talk teaching!
