Students can work through the series of activities either here, or within the following document.
Watch this video as a short introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_N5jgW0U9M (which focuses on a Canadian perspective).
Grounding in the document
Students are working through the adolescent-accessible version of the UNDRIP document here: un-adolescents-guide2013.pdf (narf.org). Read through the introductory content with your class.
Engaging with the Articles
Divide the parts 1-7 among the class, in groups. Students need to summarise and synthesise the rights outlined within their section, then share these back to the class, noting what structures or examples would demonstrate these rights as outlined, or where these may not be represented, and note some possible reasons for this. Then read parts 8-9 together as a class.
Linking to Australian events
Read the timeline from pages 24-25, and add these dates onto either an existing timeline within the classroom, or create one with the class. Consider using the online tool Tiki-Toki to add short videos of key events along the timeline, to produce a digital artefact.
Use the word bank on pages 32-35 and have students develop their own ‘Frayer models’ for each of the words and phrases.
Conclude, revise and test for knowledge
Conclude the learning sequence, or revise content later with the seven multiple choice questions / quiz questions on pages 30-31 to test students understanding.
