Judging Quality of Life

This modelling the tools is incorporated into critical challenges at grade 10, however, it can be adapted for use at all grade levels.



These activities help students explore the factors affecting a person's quality of life. Students consider what constitutes a good or rich life and then read stories about two young people to look for indicators of quality of life. After deciding which young person has the richer life, the class agrees on which indicators are the most important in determining a rich quality of life. Depending on the focus of your study, you will want to assemble a suitable pair of biographies or stories of two people who live in very different situations.
