Evaluating and interpreting evidence culminating in a debate

Study sources such as the Jerilderie Letter, reports of Kelly Gang activity, especially killing of three policemen at Stringybark Creek

Each side presents their case
1. Kelly’s actions were justified
2. Kelly’s actions were criminal

Thus the same events are examined from two very different points of view – students are learning that there is no easy right or wrong answer. Taps into Australian identity myth and hero worship.
