This resource (an ‘education pack’) is a 29-page PDF about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who joined the Australian Armed Services during times of war. The education pack is introduced by background notes, and is organised in three main sections: Early Years; Primary Years; and Middle Years. Each section is a unit of work containing inquiry questions, curriculum links, detailed teaching suggestions and lists of resources. Inquiry themes common across the units include commemorating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander servicemen and women and taking action to promote Reconciliation by researching and sharing their stories of service. Source documents and proformas for student use are included in three appendices and a glossary is provided. The education pack places particular emphasis on South Australian servicemen and women.
