How can teachers promote awareness of environmental and development issues?
This guide provides teachers with classroom resources for sustainability education for the students of Fiji, linked to the curriculum. Activities in the guide give opportunities for students to share views and ideas, and generate solutions for issues that concern them.
The activities in the HOPE guide help students understand complex issues relating to the environment and development. Students are encouraged to develop critical thinking, communication, creativity, responsibility, sound values and decision making. Teachers can adapt these activities in different class levels and subject areas. Deconstruction questions at the end of the activities deepen understanding in students, preparing them for roles as future leaders.
