Literature to support the Australian Curriculum: History by Fran Knight

Pledger Consulting, 2012. ISBN 978 1 876678 26 5.
Highly recommended for all schools. This resource is a God send for time-poor teachers and school librarians. The Australian Curriculum for History has delivered us a lot of content without too much direction on how to teach it, or how to fit everything into a crowded curriculum. Through using relevant literature teachers will be able to engage students through stories and also integrate English and History in interesting ways.
This resource lists and annotates many interesting and available literature resources in an easy to follow format. It is organised around year levels and clearly states the History focus for that year level. There is plenty of room to add your own resources too, which I found useful. It includes extra information such as available teacher notes for individual titles.
An essential resource for purchase.
