In our English-Speaking Countries course, we discuss Australia around the middle of the term. We spend a lot of time trying to develop an appreciation for the aboriginal people, their culture, their background, and some of the struggles they currently face in a modernizing Australia. We use this article to briefly look into a time in Australia’s not-too-distant history where there was great mistreatment of the Australian aboriginals.
The article worksheet includes a number of key vocabulary words at the bottom of the page and some blanks for students to fill in using those key words. It makes for a good article for developing cultural understanding, reading comprehension, and sentence completion skills.
