Abstract
This resource pack explores the causes and experiences of both World Wars. This includes soldier experiences, the Jewish experience, womens' experiences, and the aboriginal experience specifically. These experiences and the causes of the world wars are examined and contrasted across the course pack. These issues are explored through letters, images, posters, war footage, songs, poems, interviews and other primary sources. All of the Big Six Historical Thinking Concepts are represented, with each lesson focusing on one concept. Obviously each lessons scope overlaps into more than one of the big six, so that not all six lessons need to be done, or done in order. There are multiple forms of assessment offered in each lesson to ensure learning goals are met and student learning can be evaluated.
