Developed in partnership with the film Life After The Oasis, this year 9 & 10 Civics and Citizenship unit has has been designed to assist student understanding of the role of government, institutions and citizens in improving society for all. The lessons encourage students to investigate social and policy changes since the 2008 documentary film The Oasis, and The Road Home White Paper were released.
The unit uses character stories from the documentary film Life After The Oasis, to help students engage with the issue of homelessness and understand the challenges involved in solving such a complex problem. The film aims to raise awareness of the issues, interventions and mindsets associated with youth homelessness in Australia.
