Abstract

This is a unit of work where year 5-6 students will take an in depth look at the Japanese involvement in WWII and the effects of the atomic bomb on the Japanese people. Students will be required to study images, pieces of writing, video and audio to gain an empathic understanding of the Hiroshima bombing. In literacy they will also study "Photographs in the Mud", exploring the visual and linguistic features of this multimodal text.
