Don’t forget to insert any photos/diagrams/charts etc (on the assigned pages) that you may want to use in your Multimodal presentation. 2. Your teacher will guide you through each part of the task as your knowledge of Federation builds. 3. Keep a record of the websites you use for your information.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

There are six selected websites. Four of these are sound sources of information and two are less reliable. These sites have been included to assess whether students are thinking critically when selecting their information. One of the websites is for Federation University. Students will not find any information on Federation on this site. Another link it to a 'Prezi'. The other four sites are government sites for History or Parliamentary Education. You may choose to delete these.
