This fully editable bundle includes two major units: Gallipoli and Kokoda. With over 6 weeks of content, the bundle provides students with a comprehensive understanding of these two landmark campaigns in Australian History.

FULL PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS:

GALLIPOLI: INVESTIGATING THE ANZAC LEGEND

This unit has been designed to give students a comprehensive overview of the Gallipoli campaign. It challenges students to investigate the significance of Gallipoli in Australian and New Zealand society and to research the history of the campaign beyond the simplistic portrayal it often receives.

Students have the opportunity to investigate commonly held beliefs and formulate evidence based assessments of their legitimacy. The final assessments give students to opportunity to either assess the impact of the ANZAC legend in Australia and New Zealand or alternatively discuss the current commemorative practices that take place on ANZAC day.

The unit of work has been designed to be used in both Australian and New Zealand classrooms. Whilst it has been developed to respond to the Australian Curriculum for Year 9 History [The commemoration of World War I, including debates about the nature and significance of the Anzac legend (ACDSEH097)], the unit would also be appropriate when teaching Continuity and Change with the New Zealand Social Sciences curriculum.
