In the practical exploration assessment, students complete a range of short tasks to build knowledge, understanding and supportive strategies relating to the benefits of understanding our values, the influence of gender roles in the media, power and abuse of power in relationships and self-care strategies.  Emotional literacy tasks are embedded in every lesson during the practical exploration to build emotional vocabulary and better enable students to express emotions accurately.

Students participate in a collaborative task where they investigate the principles of Post Traumatic Growth, producing a product that features a case study documenting how a person of their choosing has demonstrated Post Traumatic Growth.  

Students complete an investigation into a wellbeing topic of their choosing negotiated with the teacher.

Students must demonstrate and develop the SACE capabilities throughout the subject.
