About This PDF
The Achieve! series of History titles has been developed for teachers who require modified, curriculum-focused activities for secondary school students who struggle to read and comprehend regular classroom materials because of poor literacy skills. Many of the pages will also be suitable as supplementary material for regular classes.
The downloadable PDF resource Making a Nation – Australia 1750–1918 explores ideas about the experiences of our Indigenous populations since the late 1700s, including how European colonists and Indigenous Australian peoples interacted with the land and how historians can hold conflicting views about history. Major moments in the nation's development are included, such as the Eureka Rebellion, Federation and times of increased non-European migration. Students are also provided with a scaffolded activity that will assist them to prepare an essay about the Australian identity.
