Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. Struthers

Globalisation: Your Power, Rights and Responsibilities

This course is a deep dive into the concepts of globalisation, power and how societies interact.  It is designed to give students an introduction to the disciplines of Sociology, Legal Studies and Senior Social Studies.  We will be looking into big ideas such as masculinity, the power of the media and how information, population and cultures come together, having drastic impacts on the way we socialise, live, and communicate.  We will focus on how you have the power to make a change in society and the rights and responsibilities we all have as global citizens.




Course Overview

Term 1
In Term 1 students will be introduced to the concepts of Senior Social Studies and Social Inquiry. We will then move onto the first big idea: Masculinity in Aotearoa New Zealand and look at attitudes and how political ideologies shape masculinity. Students will understand masculinity as a sociological theory and how this shapes society.

Term 2
This term students will develop thinking around the concept of power and how globalisation has shaped New Zealand society. Has colonisation around the world led to a homogenised culture? Students will devise a social inquiry to investigate this big question and how it has impacted society and culture in Aotearoa.

Term 3
Building on from their Social Inquiry in Term 2, students will undertake a Social Action to use their learning to influence positive change in society around fast fashion, food/ food waste or technology. Students will then look into the Media portrayal of society through protest and propaganda to prepare them for both an internal and optional external standard.

Term 4
Students will finish any outstanding internal assessment and prepare for the (optional) exam.

Assessment Information

Students will be offered 28 credits in the course. This is a mix of Achievement Standards and Unit Standards. Course endorsement is possible if students choose to do the optional external standard.
