Thank you for downloading ‘Is Western Civilisation Part of Your Life Today? This resource provides a way of introducing and exploring relevant aspects of the Australian Curriculum at Years 7-10 for both History and Civics and Citizenship. This free practical classroom unit will help you to help your students understand the nature and origin of the Australia in which they live. The emphasis on Western Culture as the major part of Australia’s heritage does not deny that other cultures have influenced Australia, and continue to do so, but their influence has been far less significant than that of the West.

By studying this unit, your students will be better able to appreciate and critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the society they live in, and that they want to develop in the future.
