|The unit of study will encourage students to ponder the ways in which they themselves are the product of historical developments over the last eighty years. They will be encouraged to interrogate the society around them from an historical perspective, to see the vestiges of the past in the present, to talk to people about their memories, to critique and perceive the present as a product of the past. The course will also seek to develop independent research skills through extensive use of primary source materials.|
Available to students who have completed the Diploma in Education (Aboriginal) or equivalent.
