While very suitable for the regular classroom, each of the Achieve! series of Personal Development titles has been written at a literacy level that makes the pages appropriate for secondary school students who, because of poor reading skills, may struggle to comprehend regular classroom materials.
The Diversity and Values title provides a range of tasks that explore issues to do with how individuals and groups of people in Australia are different from one another in terms of faith, sexual orientation, culture, ethnic origin and family type. Students will examine their own values and develop an understanding of the Australian cultural heritage as well as current migration issues.
The CD contains all the pages that are featured in the book, as well as a file of illustrations that can be used for other activity sheets. These files can be easily edited to suit the needs of students and the curriculum requirements of your State.
