piece for the conclusion of an 8 week unit on World War One. Students
have spent the previous 7 weeks gaining understanding of the war
focusing on the causes of the war, where it was fought, who was
involved, Australias involvement within the war with particular
attention to the Gallipoli campaign and the western front, the
Australian home front, the role of women and the experience of war.
Students have covered a wide range of topics and have the chance to

The RAFT will differentiate based on interest and then a learning
menu (See appendix 1) will be used to further differentiate based
on student readiness
