Lets Teach our Children Australian Poetry through Music
I believe that this music is not only a great reflection of the Australian culture but it also provides schools with a useful and effective resource for teaching our children about the history of Australia through poetry.

As the teaching of poetry is an expectation of the current Literacy curriculum, you will be pleased to know that our music is appropriate for use with children from Year Three and up.
(See link "http://www.e-magination.org/acu/tutorial5.htm" to see lesson ideas showing how the music can be used to teach poetry).
