The NZQA Achievement Standard 91599 'Examine personal involvement in social action(s) that aims to influence policy change(s)' encourages students to engage with a social issue and take actions designed to bring about change. Parliamentary processes such as presenting a petition, making a submission to a select committee or contacting a member of Parliament to seek a policy change, can all be linked to this standard. This resource seeks to support students who wish to link Parliament to their chosen social actions seeking to influence a policy change.
Activities in this resource include:
- vocabulary activities
- types of social actions and their purposes
- research on the different social actions connected to Parliament
- what the Education Team can incorporate into an educational on-site tour.
