Quick summary: This lesson explores key themes showcased in the AFLW ‘Player Stories’ vlog-doc: ‘A New Hero – Sabrina Frederick-Traub’. In this lesson the journeys of Sabrina, her coach, and young AFLW players lead students into an exploration of their own knowledge and understanding of equality. Using a Y-chart, students frame their understanding of equality. They consider examples of inequality and conceptualise how to build bridges to equality. Students then identify the impacts of equality and inequality on well-being, and reflect on aspects of Sabrina’s experience that can be applied to ensure equality in their own lives and the lives of people around them.
This lesson has been developed in conjunction with the AFLW in celebration of the advancement of women in sport and the promotion of equal opportunity for all people in all facets of life.
