Rocky & Me Teaching Toolkit Teaching Resource
About this Teaching Resource
Rocky & Me follows the story of Stella, an 11-year old girl living with cerebral palsy. When Stella gets her first wheelchair, she also gains independence and confidence.
The Rocky & Me Teaching Toolkit will support Year 5 and 6 teachers and students to explore themes from the short film, with learning tasks related to disability, inclusivity, friendships, puberty, wellbeing and media representation. Tasks are mapped to the Australian Curriculum, linking to English, Health and Physical Education, Critical and Creative Thinking, and Personal and Social Capability. The resource and film could also be incorporated into Respectful Relationships education for upper primary students.
