This weekend RoLIA is at the Business Educators’ Association of Queensland state conference at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The winners of the Queensland Rule of Law Essay Prize will be announced and we will be running an exhibit at the conference trade fair.
New education materials will be available at our exhibit for teachers such as a DVD of our new series of video tutorials on researching High Court cases, and our new poster and worksheets which explain the separation of powers. The poster provides an excellent summary of the checks and balances on the use of power in Australian Government. The Make Your Own Executive worksheet also encourages students to develop knowledge and understanding of the role and responsibilities of that arm of government.
All of the resources above are available for download. Click on the images to be taken to our download page. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries about RoLIA’s education resources and programs.
