Year 10 Modern History
Rights and Freedoms Resources
Year 10 Modern History students are currently undertaking research on the struggle for rights and freedoms in the Twentieth Century. Largely, students have chosen to research human rights activism in Australia, the United States of America, and South Africa.
Documentary videos are a great way to be introduced to a topic. To assist students immersion in their research, we have created the following playlists on Clickview:
South Africa Rights and Freedoms – https://clickv.ie/w/JLPq
US Rights and Freedoms – https://clickv.ie/w/k8Pq
Australian Rights and Freedoms – https://clickv.ie/w/cV3h
For primary sources, we recommend investigating our state and national libraries and museums. In particular, the educational resources curated by these national institutions provide some terrific material.
