Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a valuable resource for Years 7 and 8 Civics and Citizenship, particularly for the knowledge and understanding descriptions which focus on diversity, shared values and laws, due to its focus on discrimination. It also has relevance to the Civics and Citizenship skills at both years, particularly those focusing on interpretation and reflection as the resource activities encourage exploration of multiple perspectives and personal values.
  • It also has considerable value for the general capability of Intercultural understanding, particularly in regards to the third organising element focused on reflecting and taking responsibility as the resource activities focus on the causes of and possible reactions to racial, cultural and religious discrimination. With its focus on reflection and interacting with others, this resource also has strong relevance to the general capabilities of Ethical behaviour and Personal and social capability.
