Learning from COVID-19
The COVID-19 emergency has presented all of us with challenges, but it also provides some learning experiences for students that can be incorporated into the teaching of Victorian Curriculum: Civics and Citizenship and VCE Legal Studies.
In the video Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Colin Brooks MP, talks about the role of Parliament to create and scrutinise legislation, and how this process has been adapted to the needs of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are also suggested discussion questions, links to relevant media articles and pages to help assist understanding of this issue.
This content has been developed to meet the curriculum requirements of VCE Legal Studies, however, it can also be used for Grades 5 and 6, and Years 7 to 10 Victorian Curriculum: Civics and Citizenship when exploring how laws are made, and therefore it is suitable to be used in conjunction with the video Parliament of Victoria Explains: How Parliament makes laws. It can also be used with the Workday Revolution to explore how the working lives of the Victorian people continue to change.
