Teacher PD

Beginning Term 3 2013, I will be offering an Ancient Australia professional development session to schools in and around Melbourne.

Understanding Ancient Australia is a comprehensive PD seminar that has been tailored specifically for secondary history and humanities teachers. It uses Australian archaeology to address the key concepts and critical inquiry questions for the Year 7 Ancient World depth study area Ancient Australia.

The session will cover:

  1. Clarification of important historical and archaeological terms of reference
  2. Definition of Ancient Australia
  3. Examination of critical points in the Ancient Australia timeline
  4. Discussion of significant ancient Indigenous archaeological sites
  5. Ideas on how to approach the topic Ancient Australia in the classroom

The session will also answer some important Ancient Australia questions, such as:

  • What is Ancient Australia?
  • Why did people come to Australia?
  • When and where did they arrive?
  • How has the continent changed over time?
  • What effect did fluctuating sea levels and climate changes have on Australia’s first inhabitants?
  • How does archaeology help us understand the history of Ancient Australia?
