How can it be used?

These posters are designed to be displayed in the classroom for easy reference during classroom activities and to stimulate classroom discussion. They could be used to introduce a unit of work on the Australian Parliament, as well as a prompt to reflect on the learning achieved.

Why not use these discussion starters in conjunction with our posters:

  • Why is it important for Australia to have a Constitution? Why is it good to have a set of rules for everyone?
  • Why do you think the Constitution includes strict rules about how it can be changed?
  • Is democracy best for everyone? Why or why not?
  • What is the biggest threat to democracy?

For more democracy discussion starters, see Teaching civics and citizenship: a classroom guide.
