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 World War II – 1 looks at the causes of the war, explores main events and studies the effect of the war on Australia. Content includes the Treaty of Versailles, the rise of the Nazi Party and the Holocaust. Different perspectives about Australia’s involvement in the war are studied, along with the experiences of those on the home front, including the role of women, the introduction of rationing, conscription, censorship and the response to the threat of a Japanese invasion. Historical and literacy skills are developed through interpreting photographs and secondary sources, locating and categorising information and studying the impacts of the wartime experience.
