Family and community
The theme Family and community includes eleven subthemes relating to topics affecting individual characters, their relationships with family members, their ideas about being Australian and their involvement with community-based issues. This theme reflects the changing attitudes, values and perspectives in Australia over the period of time depicted in the series.
In each subtheme you will find a selection of resources that provide ideas for engaging students with the My Place TV series: clips and stills from various episodes, suggested History and English teaching activities, and associated student activity sheets. Some clips may be stronger and more explicit on the topic than others and teachers need to select the ones that are most relevant to their individual program.
