1950s After the turmoil and loss that WW2 brought to Australian society, Australians saw the emergence of a more conservative society . Teenagers now were encouraged to attend University, this new pressure to become a successful adult was the driving force for the new teenage subculture that emerged from 1950-1979. 1960s Following the era of the 1950s, when teenagers felt the pressure of obtaining an education and becoming successful adults, the 1960’s brought about great social change. These changes were brought about with a greater influx of immigrants who brought new ideas, customs and foods. American culture also became an overriding influence on Australian teenagers. 1970s The 1970s brought about even more change to the economy, politics, society and technology. The
Through the presentation of the characters within the novel, London depicts Australian society as a stagnant, insular society bent upon quarantining people who are disabled and preventing them from leading a full life.
Australia has been a culturally diverse society since long before white settlement. The indigenous people had many different cultures, languages and customs, even members of the First Fleet came from a number of culturally significant backgrounds. Diversity in Australia took large strides 67 years ago with the beginning of the Snowy River Scheme which promoted skilled immigrants to come here and work, because as a nation just after World War II we lacked the manpower and knowledge to complete such a large and complicated project.
It is true that you can find some similarities between the countries of China and Norway, even so, these two nations have a lot of differences. To start, I will talk about each country’s physical shape. When you look at the world’s fourth largest country in China, you’ll notice that part of the Himalayas spreads through China, making it home to many mountains. This can be compared to Norway’s Scandinavian Mountains – which stands at 2,469 meters tall. Even though the two nations are similar in this way, Norway has physical landforms that aren’t common in China. These landforms are called Fjords. A fjord is “a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs.” Norway has 1,190 fjords in total, making its physical landform stand out from China’s significantly.
Cultural competence is about having awareness, respect and understanding about the diversity around you. Cultural competence is one of the eight key practices that the early years learning framework features as vital to support a child’s learning. Cultural competence is about learning and building an understanding about different cultures while being respectful and open about different cultures and the people within them. Its more then just awareness of cultural differences, its about the ability to understand people across different cultures and developing constructive attitudes concerning cultural difference.
Australia 's prime minister had changed from John Curtin to Francis Forde to Ben Chifley. He realised that Australia needed a long term plan so that the people of Australia could protect and defend themselves from potential attacks. World War 2 ended in about 1945 and communists (people who wanted everyone to be equal) started popping up in Australia. Australia was under heaps of stress due to war and other issues and they needed to populate or perish.
The period of the 1950s to the 1960s brought about drastic changes to the Australian culture and history. However, the introduction of rock n’ roll style music was most influential towards teenagers and significantly altered history within youth culture because of its relatable tone. Furthermore, Australian society would not be the same without rock n’ roll style music, it had shaped and moulded Australia and impacted our daily activities. Additionally, the introduction of the rock n’ roll genre had instigated the ‘hippie’ and other fashion movements. Ultimately, developments and changes in Australian history during the 1950’s to 1960’s such as the introduction of rock n’ roll and its emergence into the fashion industry and teenagers’ ideals
Indigenous Australian and Middle Eastern cultures have many similarities when it comes to the factors that influenced their dietary choices throughout history and today. However with these similarities also came many differences as well. Traditions, religion, certain rituals, beliefs, outside influences and historical events were all huge factors that greatly influenced the dietary choices and the future development of each of these two cultures.
Teachers in Australia have the responsibility of catering to the learning needs and abilities of the students in their classroom. Additionally they are also responsible for catering to the unique cultural backgrounds of each student, in particular the cultures of Indigenous Australians. The teacher can cater to the diverse and complex Indigenous cultures by creating a learning environment that is based on effective student engagement for Aboriginal students. Studies have shown that Aboriginal students are currently not academically achieving as well as non-Aboriginal students (What Works: Core Issue 5). Closing the academic performance gap is considered a national priority. As a result, the Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework has been developed to ensure that schools are delivering the best possible education to all students, specifically those who identify as Aboriginal. During term 3, 2017, I completed my final practicum at Baler Primary School in a year 4 classroom. The students in my class came from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, many of which identified as Aboriginal. Throughout this essay I will use examples from my final practicum at Baler Primary School in South Hedland to discuss how to make learning engaging, accessible and culturally responsive for Aboriginal students.
Kuwait is changing at a very fast pace. Its culture is being influenced by dominant cultures, and that is resulting in new culture based on new definitions and mentalities, such as Americanization. As a matter of fact, a friend of mine is so into American lifestyle or life in general, she listens only to American music and watches their movies. She is even thinking of getting married to an American guy! In “Bored with USA” Brendon O’Connor claims that Americanization is affecting on Australia in both negative and positive ways. In addition, in “In 2,000 Years, will the World Remember Disney or Plato?” Mark Rice-Oxley talks about both negative and positive sides of Americanization in the world. He claims that American Culture spread will not
Throughout history to present day, Australian culture has become the product of a distinct blend of established traditions and new influences. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the country’s original inhabitants, created the foundation for the land’s cultural traditions over 40,000 years ago. In addition, the rest of Australia’s people are migrants or descendants of migrants from various other countries who transported their own customs, beliefs, and value systems to the land. As a result, Australia’s culture has significantly broadened its social and cultural profile over the years, and still continues to evolve today.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has stated that “Australia is the world’s most successful multicultural nation”. All the people know Australia is a multicultural state which is a civilization of populace from a wealthy variety of artistic, racial, linguistic. The multiculturalism describes the difference of culture and race in modern Australia. This difference is trying to safeguard the benefit of every Australian and national interest. Cultural variety is significant since our state, workplaces, and school are comprised of a variety of artistic, ethnic, and racial clusters. We can gain knowledge of it from one another. Everyone has their rights to express and share their culture heritage including language and religion. All of us have to establish a stage of accepting about each other. Everyone needs to respect each other whatever by different culture and religion, this is the meaning of freedom. Freedom is not likely to get rid of limitation or do what you want to do. It is a standard that everyone can understand the differences brought about by different cultures.

Italian migrants are another group that have influenced Australia’s identity and culture. Australia has also been heavily influenced by its many Italian migrants and Australians of Italian ancestries. Italians are the third largest cultural group in Australia and Italian is the third most frequently spoken language. Italians have influenced our food and our culture. Italians use much of garlic, olive oil, cheese, pasta, wine and coffee. Most Australians use these ingredients in their modern day foods. Italy’s well known and has contributed widely in Australia’s culture and identity mainly with their
Australia is both the smallest and oldest continent in the world, and it is the only country that is also a continent.  It is an island located between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific, just south of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. At 2,941,299 square miles, Australia is the sixth-largest country in the world and only about 150,000 square miles (about the size of Montana) smaller than the continental United States. Its interior land is a flat and sparsely populated desert, but as you move outward the climate changes to grassland, subtropical, tropical, and even temperate in the southeastern region.  While more than 70% of Australia is arid, the rest includes a variety of rich environments including flood plains,
