Students are asked to imagine a scenario where they have to leave their home and potentially never come back (flood, fire, earthquake, war or some other catastrophe) They must come to terms that they may not see their friends or family again because they may become separated on the move. Therefor they are only able to take with them what they can carry. They are given a list of items they might find in their house. They must select no more than 5 items to take with them. They must also justify their selections.
Students are given a case study between two (the resources are mostly weblinks so the students will have to use the computer room or iPads). Each case study reflects on a personal or historical account of what it was like to migrate to Australia from vietnam or from an Australian perspective having a large vietnamese population migrating to Australia. They are to note down any important points. Students are then chosen for hot-seating in front of the class. They are to take on the character that they have just read about and use the points that they have noted down to help them retell their story.

Some case studies are easier than others to read and understand. assign the case studies accordingly. Otherwise choose groups to accommodate for mixed ability working and evenly divide the case studies.
- Students will be assessed on their ability identify specific impacts that migrants had on Australia, from their personal recounts and historical accounts.
- Students will be assessed on their ability to summarise their given case study
- Students will be assessed on their oral presentation/hot seating and their ability to connect with the text and the underlying meaning and purpose.
