Wednesday/Thursday 8/9th September
Hello Class 9, I hope you are all well.
Hang in there for one last week of school before the holidays and a rest :)
This week we are looking at the Stolen Generation, through music.
You may already know a bit about the Stolen Generation, or you may have read the book "Rabbit Proof Fence"?
In the 'Tasks' Document there is a little background information to read, followed by Questions on each of the songs linked below.
Listen to the songs and answer the questions for each song (this could be spread over the two days).
You may be familiar with Archie Roach's "Took the Children Away", he is a very well-known Australian singer/songwriter.
The other song is by Dan Sultan, his song "Roslyn" was released in 2006.
I will also include the lyrics documents below.
Good Luck, I hope you enjoy the songs.
