What did you bring in?
After you finish the start of class activity:
- Make a list of what you know/what you need to know.
- Work with other teamates as they finish.
- Maybe set up a shared google drive folder? Check out the tab or talk to Eloise if you're unsure how.
- Now's also a good time to explore Credo or Britannica to find some tertiary info on your topic. (or look for encyclopedias!)
|We know||We need to know|
Possible 'slide outline': (after looking at credo)
- Who are the Aboriginal Australians, overview of history/culture (description)
- Contact with British settlers, founding of australia, displacement + loss of autonomy by aboriginal australians (context)
- Perception of Aboriginal Australians by british australians in early 20th century (context)
- Massacres in early 20th century (description of event)
- Taking of children into foster homes/mission schools (stolen generation) (description of event)
- Reasons why it should/shouldn't be considered a genocide
- Australian actions today (sorry day vs sterilization accusations?)
8th slide= primary source wherever it best fits?
Room 109, McGill Library
With your group, you will be:
- Identifying and describing your assigned event
- Providing historical context for your assigned event
- Analyzing a primary source from your event
- Seeking to understand and explain whether or not your assigned 'event' is a genocide according to the UN definition
The final product of your research will be a Power Point presentation with a complete bibliography.
This guide and the coresponding class are meant to introduce you to resources and practices that will help you complete your presentation.
