This unit explores expressions of culture and ethnicity within Australian society in two different contexts - Australian Indigenous culture, and ethnicity in relation to migrant groups. Culture and ethnicity refer to groups connected by shared customs, culture or heritage. Students learn how these classifications can define inequality and opportunity, shape cultural activities and provide a sense of purpose.  This unit is studied in Year 12.
