Product Description

These resources are designed to support learning for 15-16 year olds, linked to the New Zealand Curriculum and NCEA Achievement Standards typically used with Year 11 classes. They facilitate exploration of Type 2 diabetes, a non-communicable disease presenting a significant socioscientific issue for New Zealand communities. This resource comes with a DVD included in the price.

Learning experiences link students to current scientific evidence relating to Type 2 diabetes prevalence and risk, enabling students to:

  • identify patterns of prevalence and risk for Type 2 diabetes in New Zealand communities
  • identify key global patterns of prevalence and risk for Type 2 diabetes
  • develop understanding of the biological concepts underpinning the development and impact of Type 2 diabetes
  • explore the complexity of risk factors associated with the development of Type 2 diabetes, including obesity, physical inactivity, genetic inheritance, diet and lifestyle throughout the lifecourse (including before birth), and socio-economic, cultural and environmental conditions throughout the lifecourse
  • develop research and writing skills required to report comprehensively on an aspect of the Type 2 diabetes epidemic, defining a specific research question, identifying a range of evidence-based opinions around the this question and presenting a justified recommendation for an action.

The resources in this module are strongly aligned to data relevant to New Zealand communities. Development of parallel resources for Pacific Island nations is planned. Educators from other regions interested in adapting this model should contact the Liggins Institute.

An internal assessment task supporting assessment of  NCEA Achievement Standard 90926 is available in conjunction with these learning resources. This assessment resource carries the NZQA Quality Assured Assessment Trademark (QAAM#3036).
