  • Learning outcomes
  • Words and concepts to think about
  • Comprehension and reflection questions
  • List of Caring Society reconciliation campaigns, events, and multimedia resources
  • Assessment, evaluation and a rubric for holistic learning
  • Colouring sheets, word searches and other handouts
