This element involves students identifying and examining values and exploring rights and responsibilities of individuals and groups in a range of contexts and practices.
Students use instances of expressed values to explain social interactions and to determine rights and responsibilities in social and legal domains. They recognise and interpret points of view in ethical contexts. In developing and acting with ethical understanding, students:
- examine values
- explore rights and responsibilities
- consider points of view.
Typically by the end of Year 10, students:
analyse and explain the interplay of values in national and international forums and policy making
Explore rights and responsibilities
evaluate the merits of conflicting rights and responsibilities in global contexts
Consider points of view
use reasoning skills to prioritise the relative merits of points of view about complex ethical dilemmas
