Summary of task

As part of a unit of work on valuing diversity, students learnt about the importance of positive relationships as they transition into adolescence.

Students were asked to examine scenarios involving a range of relationship issues and use a thinking routine which required them to consider issues from alternative viewpoints. Students then reflected on how they might apply this strategy to help them manage relationships, especially with people outside their immediate friendship group.

Students were provided with a practical example of how the thinking routine worked.

This task relates to the focus area: relationships and sexuality.
