QUESTION 2

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH PARTS OF THE DISCOVERING DEMOCRACY KIT MATCH THE CURRICULUM OUTCOMES IN MY STATE?

Stimulus Material to start discussion:

The following matrix was prepared by QSOSE (Qld Studies of Society and Environment Consortium). The matrix has been adapted by BEA (Business Educators Association Australasia), to illustrate possible links to ‘Economy and Society’ outcomes in the Victorian SOSE syllabus, levels 4, 5 and 6. The tables are intended to stimulate discussion. 

  • Are the outcomes appropriate? 
  • Are there other outcomes? 
  • What current topics are being taught which might link to the DD materials and SOSE outcomes? 
  • What other resources are available when planning units of work?
