Abstract

This is the second and final part of a unit based on the ERICA Model (Morris & Stewart-Dore, 1984). The first episode (Stage 1), which was published in Volume 17(2) of Literacy Learning: the Middle Years, laid the foundations for learning about democracy, government and the complexity of human interactions within and across societies and centuries. This episode contains Stages 2, 3 and 4. The unit is a modified version of a unit written in
consultation with Keith Pagel, Karen Swift (leaders in literacy teaching and learning) and Robyn Bowman (Head of Department, Social Sciences) from James Nash State High School, Queensland. The modified version is printed here with permission.
