1. Get the students to form a circle with their chairs or directly on the floor. Everyone is to be in the circle.

This article challenges the partnership between sponsorship and sports development. Read this article The Conversation 13 July 2016 by asking the students to take turns to read out loud each paragraph.    Reading

The Conversation

2. Set up a Question Quadrant on the floor or on a whiteboard:

Question Quadrant

3. Get the students, in pairs, to come up with 4 questions - one for each quadrant. The questions for thinking are the hardest to come up with – but that is what we are aiming for. Example:  What is "responsible marketing practices"?

4. List all the questions on the board and put the students' names next to their question.

5. Ask the students to think about grouping the questions - the ones that are the same or similar - together.

6. Start the discussion with the most asked question.

7. Make sure the students follow the rules of Philosophy in Schools:

  • Only one person speaks at a time
  • Pay attention to the person who is speaking
  • Give other people a chance to speak
  • Build upon other people's ideas
  • No put-downs (Source: Phil Cam)

8. Discussion should involve students in critical, creative and caring thinking:

Critical Creative Caring
give reasons
explore
disagreement
consider implications
apply criteria
weigh evidence
generate questions
raise suggestions
imagine alternatives
formulate criteria
make connections
build on ideas
listen to other's points of view
consider other's reasons
explore disagreements considerately
build on other's ideas
explore other's opinions
help to synthesise suggestions
 

9. Provide Closure: Example: Get the students to reflect in their journals a time when they felt influenced by advertisements.

10. Leave the questions on the board or copy them so that the other unanswered questions can be used in the next lessons.

1. Go to the website, Charting Success - there are a range of diagrams from Sporting events showing the success or not of different sports and their communication with the public.

Charting Success

2. You are to answer the following questions:

  • What information can you deduce from each diagram?

  • Are the diagrams effective in communicating the information?

  • Are there any diagrams where you think the data are not represented clearly or effectively? How could you improve them?

  • Are there any diagrams where information is missing? Can you think of a way of presenting the data that would include that information in a clear and effective way?

  • Who might have created each diagram, and for what purpose do you think they created it? Can you think of others who might be interested in using the same data in a different way?

3. Is there a way that you could chart the success of any goals or behinds from AFL games? What would you do?
