Activity 7

Learning and unlearning about the Great War by Dr Mark Cryle And Century old stories vs contemporary students by Elaine Acworth

Download this learning kit (PDF, 1.8 MB) to inspire your teaching and provide your students with learning activities centred around the First World War.

The learning resources are based on professional development workshops facilitated by Dr Mark Cryle and Elaine Acworth, where events and themes of the Queensland experience of the First World War were disassembled and reassembled. Through these resources, we invite you and your students to meddle with mythology and play with the past, question historical certainties and take intellectual risks around alternative hypotheses. This pack seeks, in the words of one educationalist, “to access the profound through the playful”.
