Teaching Gallipoli: featured resource
Operation CLICK: Anzac to Kokoda is a classroom resource
which draws on and encourages the use of this website, as well as the Australia’s
War 1939–1945 website – www.ww2australia.gov.au
The resource book and CD-ROM package contains lessons that can be used in many contexts in History, Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) and Human Society and Its Environment (HSIE).
They were written by experienced history teachers with three aims in mind:
- to provide both beginning and experienced teachers with lessons using the two websites as core resources.
- to invite teachers to explore more effective ways of encouraging their students to incorporate ICT skills into their classroom learning activities
- to provide exciting and original lessons that will encourage young Australians to learn more about Australia’s wartime heritage through the stories and images provided on the two websites.
