South West Tasmania – What Is The Best Resource Use?

This unit uses the Franklin River dispute in the Discovering Democracy Unit Getting Things Done as a case study when teaching the development and use of a resource as well as its management. 

Population, representation, location, political affiliations, demographics, immigration

This unit uses the enquiry approach and allows the student to investigate the relationship between the population of different states and the numbers of parliamentary representatives in the House of Representative. It relates to "Who Rules?" This is a feature of Australia’s system of representative democracy.
