Resources for research
In this space you can use the links to undertake some research or design a school or church project, and find out more about any aspect of home and homelessness which interests you or which has claimed your attention so far. One of the things you might like to do is to contrast the sort of websites which assume you have a home and enough money to design or alter it and the websites of charities and agencies which try to help homeless people get a roof over their heads. Both are trying to engage your attention and, in many cases, spend or donate money.
You might like to note down in your journal or blog anything which you think challenges or changes your faith. You can find your own resources if you prefer, using the web or your local library or school resources.
Some questions to think about when looking through the websites include:
- What does the website say it is about?
- What is the website seeking to do?
- What do the pictures (if any) mean to you?
- Are there any interesting stories or reflections?
- How does the website increase your knowledge and understanding about the issue?
- How useful is the website for someone looking for information, ideas or help?
At the end of your research you might like to work in a group to design the front page of a new website highlighting issues of home and homelessness you have encountered so far.
