Year 9 History Study Resources

A series of resources held by the RHSV linked to the new Australian History Curriculum, and designed to aid in the interpretation and analysis of images and help develop an understanding of the past.

The first in this series relates to Australian Involvement in World War I – the places where Australians fought and the nature of warfare (Year 9 topic). Resources are provided for each of five themes:  Gallipoli; Sinai and Palestine; Western Front; Women in War; Representing War.

Students may use the visual material and the associated questions on their own. Alternatively, these may be used as a resource by teachers. It is hoped that both teachers and students will become aware of the valuable resources held by the RHSV and be encouraged to use our catalogue further.

The next in the series will provide images of life and working conditions in Australia in 1900.
