I didn’t expect my Australian History class to be as industrious as they are. They aren’t particularly fond of discussion, as they don’t know each other well. But they are very keen on investigating and finding out answers.

They need a challenging work than what I’m giving them. I am thinking that, for their assignment on gold, I should include a segment where they have to research the history of a gold-mining site near where they live: photos, interviews, dimensions, companies who owned it etc.


About Dave Fagg

I'm a dad, husband, and resident of a regional town in Bendigo. I earn a crust through freelance writing, and youth work. I am also studying sociology. When I'm not working I love reading on the couch, playing soccer with my son, and musing.
