Final Advice about individual and group tasks.

Individual task:

  • You are looking at one group in society from the 1920’s OR the 1930’s
  • If you choose the 1920’s your options are;
  1. women
  2. soldiers
  3. workers
  • If you choose the 1930’s your options are;
  1. Unemployed (also look at great depression and employment)
  2. wealthy
  3. stolen children
  • You must write a 500 word summary of the struggle (or experiences) felt by your group during their respective time period. 
  • You are also required you write a 500 word summary of a law that YOU CREATE to benefit your chosen group. You must provide examples of how this would change laws already in place (and provide those laws) and how it will benefit that group.

Your Group Task

  • Requires you to form groups of 3-4.
  • You must research One individual from the 1930’s or 1920’s independently without the webquest. (You can not use Wikipedia)
  • 1920’s individuals;
  1. Sir Charles Kingsford Smith
  2. Dame Nellie Melba
  3. Rev John Flynn
  • 1930’s individuals
  1. Sir Isaac Isaacs
  2. Roy Rene
  3. Nancy Walton
  4. Margaret Preston
  5. Sir Donald Bradman

(Those names listed above must be researched independently outside this webquest, you can return for information on events and political development)

Please click on the links to see the webquest links for you to start on these topics;

  • Events (choose one)
  1. Construction on Canberra (1920)
  2. the Aboriginal Day of Mourning (1930)
  • Political Development (choose one)
  1. Compulsory and preferential voting (1920)
  2. The responses of the Government to the Great Depression (1930)
  • You are to compile out of the information provided on this webquest and information you have found a 10 minute presentation in a format approved by your teacher where each individual in the group presents for at least 3 minutes each. Ideally one speaker about your chosen individual, event and political development and a conclusion.

Reminder you do not have to stick to the same time period!

    Two very detailed voting links.

    Antony green’s election blog shows voting preference history here.

    and

    A passionate essay defending the Australian electoral system, if you would like to use it as foreshadowing as proof of the benefits of compulsory voting please go here.

    A written task without references and a bibliography is a written task that will require you to resubmit and rewrite with references before it shall be marked. Your teacher.
