Course Outline:

In this course, students will learn about current issues in our world, including poverty, inequality and human rights, and issues of the student's choice.  They will then look at what inspiring groups and individuals are doing about these problems. The final part of the course will be students planning and carrying out a social action of their own.

Students will develop skills such as research, planning group work, community engagement and social change.

There is one NCEA internal assessment in this course which includes 4 literacy credits.

Students taking SSS101 need to be self-motivated and committed to seeing their social action through to completion.

This course can be taken in combination with any other Year 11 Social Studies semester course.
