  12. 12. OverviewsThe place and position of overviews‣An overview will constitute approximately 10% ofthe total teaching time for the year‣Overview content identifies important features ofthe period as part of an expansive chronology‣The overview could be built into different parts ofthe depth studies as appropriateConsider the some of the original aims ofthe design of the curriculum:‣appreciation of different cultures‣be able to contextualise historical periods‣world history approach ©User: Hanay / Wikimedia Commons Content Structure | Annabel Astbury 2011Thursday, 28 July 2011
  13. 13. Key inquiry questions Overviews _History.pdf _resources/Australian_Curriculum_- http://www.acara.edu.au/verve/ Historical knowledge and understanding Depth Studies Historical skillsChallenge 3: World history overviewsHow to approach / consider the overviewsThursday, 28 July 2011
  14. 14. Planning a course ‣ Look at content of the overview and assess where it fits into the depth studies ‣ Use the key inquiry questions as a focus for the teaching and learning ‣ Focus on integrating the overviews ‣ Over the year the course has to tell a bigger story ‣ Some aspects of overviews can be useful introducing depth studyThursday, 28 July 2011
  15. 15. Which Inquiry Questions can be Depth Study answered in this Depth Study? Which parts of the overview can be addressed in this Depth Study? ‣This approach gets you to refocus on the broader questions of inquiry ‣Does not allow for the approach of the overview being taught as a discreet topicChallenge 3: World history overviewsPlanningThursday, 28 July 2011
  16. 16. Let’s look at a sample approachThursday, 28 July 2011
  17. 17. Overview elaborations - suggested approaches for teaching Overview content for the ancient world (Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, Rome, India, China and the Maya) includes the following: the theory that people moved out of Africa around 60 000 BCE and migrated to other parts of the world, including Australia • using a map to describe the pattern of movement of humans ‘out of Africa’ and across other continents over time, and looking at the types of evidence of these movements (for example stone tools, human remains and cave paintings) the evidence for the emergence and establishment of ancient societies (including art, iconography, writing tools and pottery) • exploring an early example of art (for example the 17 000 BCE great bull paintings from the Lascaux Cave in France) and discussing why they may have been painted • discussing the evolving nature of the evidence in this period, which shows increasingly sophisticated forms of technology (for example the transition from making tools out of stone, bone and wood to metalworking) • identifying sources of evidence for the emergence of organised states (for example the Cuneiform script phonetic writing of the Sumerians c.3500 BCE; the ancient law code of Hammurabi clay tablets from ancient Babylon c.1790 BCE; artefacts found in the tombs at Ur Sumer c.2500 BCE, which indicate the presence of either royalty or priestesses; pottery shards and fragments discovered in Palestine made of mud from the River Nile in Egypt as evidence of trade key features of ancient societies (farming, trade, social classes, religion, rule of law) • exploring why the shift from hunting and foraging to cultivation (and the domestication of animals) led to the development of permanent settlements • identifying the major civilisations of the ancient world (namely Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, Rome, India, China and the Maya); where and when they existed, and the evidence for contact between them • locating the major civilisations of the ancient world on a world map and using a timeline to identify the longevity of each ancient civilisation • identifying the major religions/philosophies that emerged by the end of the period (Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Christianity, Islam), and their key beliefs (through group work) 16Thursday, 28 July 2011
  18. 18. Overview Depth Study Content: Investigating the Ancient Past•the theory that people moved out ofAfrica around 60 000 BCE andmigrated to other parts of the world,including Australia•the evidence for the emergence andestablishment of ancient societies(including art, iconography, writing toolsand pottery)•key features of ancient societies(farming, trade, social classes, religion,rule of law)Thursday, 28 July 2011
  19. 19. Overview Depth Study Content: Investigating the Ancient Past•the theory that people moved out ofAfrica around 60 000 BCE andmigrated to other parts of the world,including Australia ‣How historians and archaeologists investigate history, including excavation and archival research•the evidence for the emergence andestablishment of ancient societies ‣The range of sources that can be used in an historical(including art, iconography, writing tools investigation, including archaeological and writtenand pottery) sources•key features of ancient societies ‣The methods and sources that can be used to(farming, trade, social classes, religion, investigate at least ONE historical controversy orrule of law) mystery that has challenged historians or archaeologists ‣The nature of sources for Ancient Australia and what they reveal about Australia’s past in the ancient period ‣The importance of conserving the remains of the past, using examples of the ancient worldThursday, 28 July 2011

  25. 25. Activities that may assist in student learning of overviews‣Activities that allow students to work individually / small groups whichgenerate questions and thought:‣Mapping exercise: annotated maps on Google maps - great to giveoverviews and maintain throughout the course‣small group work on analysis of objects: ‘mystery’ objects fromcollections such as History of the world in 100 Objects‣Small group work on analysis of images‣Timelines: using online tools that can be amended or added to.Danger that the teaching of the overviews could be completely teacher centred /comprehension type questions - no critical analysis or thought.Thursday, 28 July 2011
