SEV supplementary resource material

Textbook links
SEV has also compiled a list of links used in the textbooks for the new VCE Study Designs. This will enable students and teachers to easily locate the online resources referred to in the books. The files are available as downloadable PDFs for Australian and Global Politics on the page here, and for Global Politics on the page here. Files for links from the Sociology textbooks are available on the page here.

Case studies
SEV has produced a series of small case studies for Australian and Global Politics to complement the first edition textbooks. These can be downloaded from the members section.

This material was researched and compiled by Tia Spanos, who worked as an intern at SEV in 2011 as part of her Bachelor of International Relations at La Trobe University. Any opinions expressed are not necessarily the views held by SEV. We thank Tia for her research and effort in compiling information that relates to topics explored in the VCE Australian and Global Politics Study design.
