Activity 1: Ms Fry has decided to make her classes more interesting. She wants to introduce ideas about social justice to her class of students. She has some material from books she used in the previous year but wants something more up to date. Where to look?

Ms Fry thinks about what sort of information might work. She comes up with a list of different types of information with some reasons for using each type:

  • Newspaper articles - to illustrate ideas which are topical.
  • Audio e.g. Radio NZ – to appeal to learners who enjoy listening and the material is current.
  • Video clips on the Internet e.g. Youtube – interesting studies of humanity appear here.
