We have developed a number of educational resources that can be used by teachers to incorporate themes of social justice, human rights and eco-justice into the classroom.
These resources are regularly updated. Users are encouraged to use and distribute the work for non-commercial purposes (including educational purposes, research and study) as long as the work is unchanged and is attributed to the Edmund Rice Centre.
We have developed resources for each subject area: English, HSIE (including history, geography, Studies of Religion, Aboriginal studies, commerce, economics and busines studies) and Science.
The Edmund Rice Centre's free publication Asylum Seekers and Refugees Education Resource provides activities for students which are practical, engaging and focused on increasing awareness about human rights and advocacy.
Students are encouraged to think about asylum seekers and refugees with compassion, to move their understanding from the head to the heart.
We have developed activities to help teachers direct their students' exploration of the first Refugee Tea, entered at an Olympic Games. They are suitable for both Primary and Secondary students.
