Social Literacy Book G3

Groups in Society explores the social groups and social structures that people are born into and the effects these have on their values and actions. A serialised story about Hyca and Naci, two Sicilian slaves in ancient Athens, is supported by authentic historical documents and archaeological evidence from ancient Greece. Through historical investigation, students develop the concepts of social groups, social class, roles, rules, relationships, law and social change. Through practical investigation of these questions and developing a concept of social group, students move towards building up a language for understanding socialisation: the overall theme of the series of books to which this unit belongs. The Social Literacy Project has developed this unit as part of an interdisciplinary social science course for primary and secondary schools. The goal of social literacy is for students to develop a framework of social concepts as tools for social understanding and active, confident social participation.
