This week, we've listened to the presentations everyone had prepared on the "Stolen Generation" children and made notes (cf links). These presentations helped us understand how traumatic their experiences were and how deeply these children were bound to be affected their whole life.
Then we had an oral understanding test on a video entitled "Kanyini interview", Kanyini being an Aboriginal singer, former "Stolen Generation" child, whose life and experience inspired Melany Hogan, film director.
For next week, we have to do a webquest on the "Freedom ride" and Aboriginals in today's Australia.
Here are your friends' notes on the presentations we listened to in class about Charles Kickett, Daniel Forrester, Jane Butters and Bill Simon.
