Homework Ideas
The following educational content was developed by the SaS Fellow Sonal Katyal as part of her SaS Fellowship in early 2022. In line with the SaS educational approach, these lessons and activities were developed to engage with school children on AMR through an interactive and fun approach. Sonal used active learning, creative arts and immersive dialogue based approaches to create engaging content for the three day workshops that she conducted in Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh for audiences in the age group of 15-18 years.
Me Against the Superbugs

This workshop informs young people about antibiotic resistance, by helping them understand the science involved. The major tools used are dialogue, games, role-playing and dramatics.
