Choosing a project
When developing collaborative projects with the local council, you might
ask the following questions:
- Should I develop a unit of work involving knowledge of local government
and skills of active citizenship? Where will I find the necessary
- Will the unit of work link to formal
and/or informal school curriculum?
- What programs that
link to the local area and local government already exist in the school?
- How might I prepare students when using council
resources? What practical steps need to be taken to organise the visits
or talks? Will there be opportunities for all students to participate? Will
I be able to meet the needs of all students?
- How do I contact my local council? Use the Local
Government Directory to find contact details and services offered.
