Our Savage Earth
Our Savage Earth examines the idea that extreme natural and cultural events have causes and effects. Students will examine how people respond to community challenges, and what measures can be adopted to mitigate the impacts of the events.
Visit the concepts in different contexts, so students refine and embed the key understandings. The activities are varied and are designed to develop the key competencies and provide engagement. The teaching and learning sequence provides the tools to enhance important outcomes for diverse learners by applying the Best Evidence Synthesis in Social Science.
Our Savage Earth includes a unit outline, social inquiry overview, detailed teaching and learning sequence, engaging activities and a final assessment opportunity.
