Port Arthur Alive: Exploring Past and Present, 1. Getting Started.
Tasmanian Education Dept., Hobart (Australia).
Part 1 of this five-part project invites students of the Tasmanian region of Australia to explore the history of Port Arthur, a 19th century penal colony located in Tasmania. The project is based on three ideas: (1) studying history can be educational and enjoyable; (2) imagination is an essential part of studying history; and (3) history is most of all a means by which to seek to understand the present--one's self and society as it exists now. Part 1 of the project contains six sections: (1) introducing "Port Arthur Alive"; (2) getting started on imaginative role play; (3) simple drama structures; (4) building stories from opposite concepts; (5) visiting Port Arthur; and (6) further reading and historical sources.
