Teacher guide Protest: The world as it is, the world as it could be

TLF ID M013230

This is a unit of inquiry made up of 12 learning sequences for year 10 in the English for the Australian Curriculum resource. Each learning sequence contains a series of resources, suggested activities to carry out with students and a post-activity reflection. While each learning sequence can be used independently, sequences also combine to form a comprehensive area of study that can take place over 12 weeks. Different approaches to assessment are suggested within sequences, including peer and self-assessment and teacher assessment.
