In Term 1 our Big Idea is DEMOCRACY.
The essential question is 'How does democracy have an impact on the way we live?'.
Our challenge is to 'Respond to an issue the you want changed'.
Over the past couple of days we have discussed the importance of asking 'good' questions to guide us in our research.
