The lessons have been developed to be age appropriate and to build on prior learning. Within the context of each topic, students use their learning and personal experiences to develop their own moral frameworks through which they will explore the world. Students engage in regular discussions and debates about social issues which encourages them to prepare arguments and to share opinions in a constructive and respectful manner. Students are encouraged to follow oracy frameworks, which support the development of communication skills, and ground rules, rooted on showing mutual respect. These are revisited every lesson.
