Social Literacy Book D3

Relationships are made when people do things together. This unit begins exploring the concept of relationship with students examining their families. There are many types of relationships in families. In fact, as students' investigations go on, it becomes obvious that there are many different types of family. In all families, however, the members help each other and share things together. Students then move on to the broader social concept of relationship. Relationships include, not only relatives, but, for example, friends, enemies, neighbours and competitors as well. This third unit of Series D applies concepts of dependence and cooperation introduced in Units D1 and D2. 'Relationships' is another imporlanl concept as students work towards the overall theme of this series: the meaning of 'community'. The Social Literacy Pro|ect has developed this unit as part of an interdisciplinary social science course for primary and secondary schools. The goal of social literacy is for students to develop a framework of social concepts as tools for social understanding and active, confident social participation.
