How to Use this Resource:

Know Your Risk consists of nine lessons. Each lesson is designed for a time frame of 45-50 minutes. This should allow for
the lesson, set-up, group activity and follow-up. The lessons may be used one at a time and out of order, but the resource
can be used easily in sequence as the activities have a cumulative effect.

Lesson Format

Each lesson follows the same format:

1. Set-up – a teacher-led activity for the whole class that introduces concepts by engaging students in brainstorming or discussions

2. Group Activity – a small group activity that allows the students to explore the concepts and their applications in more

3. Follow-up – an opportunity for the small groups to present their findings and for the whole class to discuss how the
activity has changed their attitudes

4. Individual Activity – a homework sheet for individual students to practise the skills developed in the lesson
