Thanks Miss Walkley for this great lesson that links to our Inquiry Learning.
Learning Intention: I am learning to examine the reasons why some children, especially girls, miss out on an education and what is being done to address this problem.
Discuss in small groups:
Why education is important?
What helps students learn?
What stops students from learning?
Why girls sometimes have more limited educational opportunities than boys?
How these barriers to learning can be overcome?
Read one or both of the following case studies:
Educating girls in Pakistan http://www.globaleducation.edu.au/case-studies/educating-girls-in-pakistan.html
Child-friendly schools in Mozambique http://www.globaleducation.edu.au/case-studies/child-friendly-schools-in-mozambique.html
Create a two-column table. In the left column list reasons students do not attend school and, in the right, list activities being undertaken to address these issues.
