Schooling, service and The Great War: Secondary resource

Department of Veterans' Affairs

This educational resource investigates the diverse experiences of Australian school communities during the Great War. Each investigation uses primary and secondary sources to look at what students were learning about the British Empire, its Allies and enemies, the consequences on daily life at school, the values taught, the patriotic activities undertaken, the reasons why some students and teachers enlisted and responses to the loss or wounding of people from school communities.

Each investigation has ‘tuning in’ and ‘going further’ learning activities.

Additional sources  are provided on the CD-ROM.

Soft cover, CD, photographs, 94 pages.
