Toolkits & Guides
184 p.

Connect with Respect is a curriculum tool to assist teachers. It draws on research on violence prevention, gender norms, and the programmatic experience of school-based interventions. The toolkit includes a learning tool for teachers to build their own knowledge and awareness on related topics, as well as a series of learning activities teachers can use to increase knowledge, positive attitudes and skills among students. Designed for lower secondary school learners, activities can be integrated within a range of subjects, including literacy, social studies, civics/citizenship education, health, life skills and sexuality education. Connect with Respect was initially developed by a team from the University of Melbourne for use in the Asia Pacific region. More recently, it has undergone regional adaptation for use in the Eastern and Southern Africa region. Connect with Respect is available in English, Chinese, Burmese, Thai and Vietnamese.
