Mirror lessons

icon Mirror_lessons (414.7 kB) This unique text compares in pictures the lives of two boys living on opposite sides of the world. One boy lives in a city in Australia the other in Morocco, North Africa. The book contains a short introduction written in English and Arabic and then proceeds to tell the story of a day in each boy’s life through pictures. 

These lessons are a suggested approach to teaching and learning using the text Mirror. An assumption has been made that the lessons will be adapted where necessary to address time constraints, access to resources, the needs of individual students, their cultural background and experiences.
