The Rabbits, Shaun Tan – A metaphorical story related to colonisation.

Noel Pearson’s Eulogy at Gough Whitlam’s funeral would be a great literary challenge for year 6/7 students. Although lots of complex language is used, it is very powerful and gives a good summary of more recent Aboriginal history through one man’s perspective.
