Inquiry: Black Saturday

Hi Team,

Last week I was very impressed by our role-play, the ‘2014 Black Saturday Bushfires Community Conference’. You all embraced a role of a community member and developed an understanding of the ways these people were affected by the Black Saturday Bushfires.  You used this informative website http://www.abc.net.au/innovation/blacksaturday/ to learn about the experiences and stories of different people. Including people who live in fire affected areas, people who lost family members, fire-fighters, psychologists and the Emergency Services Commissioner. We explored their lives before, during and after the tragedy of Black Saturday.

On this page can you share:

  • A fact you learnt about Black Saturday

  • Your role in the role-play, including the person you researched and a summary of their story.

  • What you learnt from completing a role-play

Please write a quality comment and structure your response using our reflective questions:

‘What did we learn?’                ‘How did we learn it?’   

‘What was interesting?’              ‘Were we successful?’

Looking forward to reading your responses!

Miss Koth
