Simple graphs to explain simple things. If only it was easier to get people to read things like these and explain that 'boat people' aren't jumping queues or being dishonest or attempting anything bad; they're just excersising their human right to seek asylum. 

 

I'd maybe use this in conjunction with- or in the same unit as- the Julian Burnside article below. Civics and Citizenship, Economics (how would more/less refugees having citizenship in Australia affect our economy?), and Historical links. Geographical, too, in terms of where asylum seekers are coming from and going to.

Photovoice: understanding high school females’ conceptions of mathematics and learning mathematics - Springer

Photovoice: understanding high school females’ conceptions of mathematics and learning mathematics - Springer | Mathematics Education | Scoop.it
Abstract

Photovoice is a participatory action research tool that is grounded in the literature for critical consciousness (Wang & Burris, 1997). Four creative high school girls who reported struggles with mathematics were given cameras and asked to take photographs to answer the following questions: (1) What is mathematics? (2) What is your ideal learning environment? (3) What things impede your learning of mathematics? Within-case and cross-case analyses of the photographs and interview responses were conducted. Each individual case was analyzed using the work of Belenky, Clinchy, Goldberger, and Tarule (Women’s Ways of Knowing, 1986) who investigated women’s epistemological perspectives. The girls were either silenced (disconnected from the mathematical knowledge of the teacher), received (lacked confidence to do mathematics independently), or “fragily” subjective (viewed mathematical knowledge as personal rather than imparted by the teacher) knowers of mathematics. The use of photovoice has the power to facilitate the nurturing of silence as it moves toward the “roar which is on the other side of silence” (Belenky et al., 1986, p. 4).

Amy Webb: How I hacked online dating | Video on TED.com

Amy Webb was having no luck with online dating. The dates she liked didn't write her back, and her own profile attracted crickets (and worse). So, as any fan of data would do: she started making a spreadsheet.

While it's awesome to see that so many people are able to protest and have their voices heard (or, attempt to have their voices heard); it's also upsetting to know that there's such a huge need for protests- protests can only mean that people are feeling opressed, targeted, bullied, and hurt. 

 

This could easily be a very cool resource for history; showing children the sites of prevalent protests all over the world, and society/humanities based classes too, where you can take a bigger look at what caused these protests.
