Product Description

Henry Lawson called for revolution in early Australia. In, 'Faces in the Street', he laments the routine of city life and how everyone has become soulless. He speaks of a 'Red Revolution' coming. This was the time when communism was becoming a global force.

The centre of this unit is the recording of the work. It is embedded in a PowerPoint that promotes three simple stages of tackling the poem. This complements the workbook activities that can be printed off and used as needed. The 'Before You Read' tasks help prepare students by building on what they already know or by having them imagine what they may encounter. How people make a living is one of the foremost concerns. The 'As You Read' tasks centre on the poem itself; the images, the rhyme, the narrative. We have biblical references which are interesting. And the 'After You Read' activities attempt to place this in context by encouraging research or an application of the information gathered. The notion of employment was topical then and is topical now.

This work is also part of a Lawson Collection which includes, Andy's Gone with Cattle, Knocking Around, Mary Called Him Mister, Past Carin', The Faces in the Street and The Glass on the Bar.

There are also works by Banjo Paterson; Waltzing Matilda, The Geebung Polo Club, Mulga Bill's Bicycle, The Man from Snowy River and The Man from Ironbark.
