Always an Inclusive Australia?

Level: Year 9

Topic: Always an Inclusive Australia?

During this unit students will consider the questions: Has Australia always been an inclusive society? Is Australia an inclusive society today? They will explore changes in attitudes and perspectives throughout Australia’s history through study and analysis of key events including; European settlement and its impact on Indigenous peoples, Immigration and the ‘White Australia Policy’, the Stolen Generation, and War. They will compare the attitudes and perspectives of the past to today’s society, to see what has changed and what still remains a challenge.
