Tips and examples for aligning this SDG with your class:
- Use dialogue to make real life connections between the content and subject you teach and what young people are experiencing regarding the issue.
- Use Dialogue as an activity that you come back to at key moments of a project to revisit the topic from various points of view and to reflect. For example, you might want to enter a dialogue on the subject before you teach a project, to help learners get personally connected, then host another dialogue at the end to help them explore what was learned and any new ideas that have come from the experience.
- Use data and facts about a topic only as a catalyst for the dialogue, not in the dialogue itself. Be sure to allow learners the space to bring their own personal experiences into the conversation and to explore instead of debating an issue.
Quantify the impact on humanity of addressing SDG 3 target areas using this video from the World Health
to calculate numbers. Host an in-class dialogue after doing calculations to explore the
qualitative impact of
addressing Good Health and Well-Being on students' own lives.
Have learners track their own healthy habits for 1-2 weeks and reflect on the choices they make for their own well-being and the good of their community. Book learners into a Health and Well-Being video conference to talk about what they have experienced regarding the topic.
Ask learners to complete the topic on Health and Well-being in the Ultimate Dialogue Adventure and share their own personal story in the dialogue space. Share back in a group dialogue what they have learned from their peers in the written dialogue space. (Use WWW/EBI from the Essential of Dialogue to get learners talking about what went well in the online conversation.)
Ask learners to practice questioning in the Ultimate Dialogue Adventure topic for Health and Well-Being by creating a list of Five W’s questions to ask (What, Why, When, Where and Who). Have learners post questions in appropriate moments of the conversations and share back on how they used this within the topic.
