Description

Key Question: What have we learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic? This is a Civics and Citizenship unit that supports the requirement that students discuss social issues, suggest solutions and plan possible action. It promotes the idea of the Thoughtful Citizen, who is aware of the complexity of decision-making at various levels, is respectful of others and prepared to act responsibly. Each school subject has its own distinctive critical questions which tend to recur frequently (e.g. in Science, such a question is ‘Was this a fair test?’). The critical question for Civics and Citizenship is What is in the best interests of society as a whole, as opposed to the interests of individual citizens? In the national goals this is stated as “have empathy for the circumstances of others and work for the common good”. The Corona virus (COVID-19) is a complex social issue of historical importance. It can be dealt with in many different ways at different year levels, so teachers will possibly need to select those activities that suit time limits and student age.

Suggestions for our website and Teacher Resource Pages are always welcome  and can be posted in our  Discussion Forum
