Queensland Rail and Griffith University have combined to prepare a series of lesson plans aimed at reducing the impact of graffiti in the community. Graffiti clean-up costs millions of dollars for various organisations annually.
The lesson plans developed, are aimed at appropriate year levels from Prep to Year 12. Each lesson plan is approximately 25 minutes in duration and can be readily integrated with SOSE and HPE outcomes.
These fully prepared, user friendly packages, include a full lesson plan, teaching resources and a list of source materials for teacher's to deliver.
The learning packages have been prepared by Dr Juliette Goldman (Senior Lecturer, School of Education and Professional Studies, Griffith University) and deemed appropriate for use within the current curriculum context.
These packages are a valuable tool in educating young people about the damaging impact of graffiti on the community. They also have the benefit of minimal preparation time - all the preparatory work is done - with class teachers able to quickly familiarise themselves with the lesson plan prior to presentation.
We encourage all teachers to take full advantage of this teaching resource package and see how we can all work together to reduce the impacts of graffiti on our community.
