Tourism for Inclusive Growth

Tourism is a recognized pillar of most – if not all – the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), particularly Goals 1 (no poverty), 5 (gender equality), 8 (decent work and economic growth) and 10 (reduce inequalities).

Help the United Nations promote International Tourism Day and the value of tourism. The impact of COVID-19 on tourism will cost the world economy 4 trillion dollars. Developing countries will be among the most affected ones.

Let's Take A Writing Journey Together

Ralph Fletcher Teacher Hangout

Plant Your Seed

Living in Australia and missing the opportunity to host so many of my friends from around the world when COVID caused OGC2020 to be cancelled. I want to take you on a virtual tour of my home land via a Picture Story Book written by Alison Lester ‘Are We There Yet’.

Our unpacking activity this week is mind mapping. A diagram used to visually organise information. I would love to know all the places you learnt about in the story. Create a mind map with Australia in the middle and share all the places you visited with Alison Lester. 

This week you have two ways to create your mind map:

  1. Create a written map in your writer’s notebook
  2. Create your mind map using 

This week I have shared my unpacking both ways. What you will see is a collection of facts and information. When you prepare to writing piece it is important to collect research and information to help you decide on what genre you may like to create your draft.
