Lest We Forget comprises six literature-based units of work for PETAA members. The units support the study of contemporary picture books and novels and twentieth century poetry, as well as primary source materials (such as photographs, newspapers, letters and diaries) so that students can explore representations of WW1, analyse quality texts and use them as a model to develop personal responses to aspects of the war. Students are invited to share their responses by submitting work samples.
Each classroom unit of work represents approximately five weeks duration in four teaching and learning sequences, with worksheets, a summative assessment task, supporting teacher resources for background on the ANZACs and the Gallipoli campaign, and links to the Australian Curriculum: English and New South Wales and Victorian syllabus outcomes.
