ATYP On Demand plus is a complete digital education package for Primary teachers, using drama and literacy strategies to teach the F-6 curriculum.

An annual subscription gives you access to detailed 8-week units of work with accompanying resources, suggested activities and instructional videos led by ATYP Teaching Artists. The initial three units are linked to the History curriculum: Past and Present (F-2), First Nations Connections (Year 3-4) and Waves of Migration (Year 5-6).

In 2022 we will be launching three new units:

  • English – Teaching Poetry through Drama (Year 3-6 ) available in Term 1, 2022 (in partnership with Poetry in Action)

Your subscription also includes access to all the features of ATYP On Demand, including a Workshop series and recordings of past ATYP productions suitable for Primary and Secondary school audiences. Each production is accompanied by a series of resources for teachers.

Past and Present
Years F-2

In this unit we’re going to use drama strategies to explore concepts of past and present, including how things change and how things stay the same. The drama and literacy strategies will enable the students to learn about the concepts of past and present through literature, objects, images and stories.

Students will develop an understanding of continuity and change in family life in Australia. Students will learn about the significant person, Miles Franklin, through an historical inquiry into her life as one of Australia’s first female writers and examine her challenges as a woman of her time. This exploration will be done through the book Miss Franklin by Libby Hathorn.

First Nations Connections
Years 3-4

This unit uses drama strategies and other embodied methods to explore the important ways in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are deeply connected to Country/Place, culture, family and community. This unit is an excellent introduction for students to undertake before studying the European colonisation of Australia and subsequent historical events. By looking at history through an indigenous lens, students from all backgrounds will gain a deeper understanding of and a greater empathy towards Indigenous Australians, their cultures and histories.

Waves of Migration
Years 5-6

In this unit we use drama strategies to explore the experiences of migrants in Australia throughout Australian history and consider the diverse reasons people might leave their country of birth to start a new life elsewhere. The unit will focus on migration from the 1800’s including a focus on The Gold Rush.

We’ve partnered with the State Library of New South Wales to access their primary sources on migration, including a video discussing a well known migrant and explorer Ludwig Leichhardt, presented by a State Library of NSW curator.
