First Day Teaching Toolkit (Series)
About this Study Guide
In First Day (Series), it is Hannah Bradford’s first year of high school. As a transgender girl, Hannah not only has to navigate the challenges that come with starting a new school, but also find the courage to live as her most authentic self.
This resource will support Year 6 and 7 teachers and students to explore the themes in First Day, and help students to prepare for, process, and reflect on their own transitions to secondary school. Suggested learning tasks for each episode relate to inclusive behaviours, identity, relationships, and wellbeing. Tasks will help students learn about respectful relationships, and remind them that we are all more alike than we are different.
