THE NEW UPDATED UNIT WILL BE ADDED BEFORE SEPTEMBER 2023
These are older units that I am in the process of updating into a more cohesive programme.
E-SAFETY AND DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP
In this unit students will revisit ways of keeping themselves safe online and when using social media, but it will also go one to talk about sexting, grooming and long term consequences of online behaviour. It will also look at cyber bullying and its consequences for both victim and perpetrator.
WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD
Welcome to the Real World is a financial literacy unit based on the Real Game program. In it the students look at the link between qualifications, jobs and lifestyle. The students are give a job role from which they construct a lifestyle which includes groceries as well as housing, transport and luxury items. It will develop the students budgeting and numeracy skills.
CONSENT, CONCEPTION AND CONTRACEPTION
In this unit the students will be focusing on intimate relationships and in particular when is the right time to become intimate and how to stay safe when getting intimate. There is particular focus on the concept of and law around consent. This scheme includes the Condom Demonstration as well as use of a placebo Contraception kit, however these are both optional.
This unit really gets the students thinking about their own values and decision making skills. It uses thought experiments to challenge the student’s values and ideas, in particular using the Armageddon thought experiment to consider not just their own values but the wider community’s needs.
