This unit is student-centered, focusing on contemporary and historical issues. Knowledge, skills, and attributes will be acquired through a broad range of teaching and learning approaches - listening/viewing/reading. The teaching pedagogy is 'flipped' placing responsibility onto the student to come to class equipped with prior knowledge gained from that week's readings (or wider reading) in advance. Students will be taught the basic skills of 'effective reading' reading for meaning, not for facts. This together with increased research skills will improve the student attributes. Experiential learning and other approaches will also be adopted to ensure the student is active in Creative, Designing increasing skills in Research and Inquiry. Objective thinking will be encouraged to simulate rational thought processes - skills required in the modern workplace.
