ReachOut Lesson Plan: Understanding and celebrating people with disability

People with disability still face stigma and social barriers that affect their ability to engage fully in their communities. This lesson supports students to empathise with, understand and celebrate people with disability by focusing on Dylan Alcott, the 2022 Australian of the Year.

Students also reflect on the identities and experiences of people with disability, and on the importance of recognising and promoting their achievements in public life. While this lesson can be taught at any time, it is a great resource to use for International Day of People with Disability (December 3).

This lesson is suitable for students in Years 7-8.
