    special Days

    When teaching social education it is important to make our teaching as relevant as possible to students' lives. 

    One way to do this is to recognise special days that are important for our society. To mark these days as important, many schools undertake ceremonies or actions that allow students to act out their citizenship role.

    Global Education

    The May 2015 edition of the 'Social Educator' Journal  raises the importance of young people being educated for informed and active global citizenship. The authors  suggest a 2018  declaration of educational aims for Australia where “students act with moral integrity, develop specific skills of problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, empathy and collaboration, to enable a fair, sustainable, compassionate and just world. It is hoped that such an education is transformative for personal, community and global well being.”
