I think developing understanding and awareness of the key issues in Development Education requires students to be active and getting your class to engage in social change as you’ve outlined is empowering and you are guaranteed buy-in from a sixth class. As you’ve mooted teaching at the senior end enables you to drill down deep into topics and explore DE themes like equality, racism, and climate change as you listed. Students need to be given ample opportunities to discuss issues, formulate solutions, develop the necessary language and practice using their voice. Getting them to understand that they can voice their opinions and act and influence the world around them is fundamental in Development Education.
