New Inquiry: Whose voice is heard? What does is it mean to be fair?

In our school we are looking at a new inquiry question, which is: Whose voice is heard, and what does it mean to be fair?  Our last question was: Do societies need empathy?

Some of our thinking so far:

  • teachers and parents are heard
  • children's voices are heard when talking in a group of other children
  • I think it has to do with power
  • depends on where you are
  • fairness is when everyone is treated equally
  • equity
  • fairness is that no one is treated better than others
  • it's not fair that some voices are not heard that need to be heard

In Other News:

  • We have a field trip to Forest Valley on Monday November 24th 2014.
  • There is a drama presentation coming to our school on Friday November 28th 2014.
