Global Education

Teacher resources to encourage a global
perspective across the curriculum

The Poverty Priority

The Poverty Priority, A secondary school Geography teaching resource for Years 7 to 10 consists of four global education inquiries relating to themes of community, urbanisation, trade and wellbeing. Students are guided to reflect on what it means to be rich and poor, to make connections between their own lives and the lives of others, and to discover how our global future is dependent on those connections.

The Poverty Priority provides teachers with information and strategies to illuminate the complexity surrounding poverty, responses to poverty, and to increase students understanding, skills and motivation to make a difference as active global citizens.
