This Stage 5 HSIE/English resource examines Australia’s roles in war, including their involvement in WWI and WWII and highlights Australia’s role in the global context during the twentieth century. Students will examine the historical context of the wars and the perceptions that existed during the twentieth century regarding veteran physical and mental health upon their return from active duty. They will then build links between these historical perceptions and the contemporary context, with special focus on the Invictus Games as a means of recognising and celebrating injured returned veterans. While primarily suited to HSIE Stage 5 students, this resource also has cross-curricular ties to the stage 5 English syllabus. This resource is also downloadable as a SCORM file: the downloaded version will only work if you upload it to a webserver, such as Moodle or Canvas.
