This unit is designed to address the issue of racism. It is designed for students at Year 10/11 (aged 14-16).
In this presentation (which will take roughly 20 minutes), students are given some provocative images, an entertaining video clip, and plenty of ideas to think about and reflect upon prior to the main lesson.
The teacher will take the role of someone with a “Green Hat”.
If they have not already been decided upon in advance in an assembly, they will choose (or ask the class to vote on) one of the numerous “Imagine a world…” discussion points which are provided (or invent one of their own). When the discussion point has been selected, each person in the class will be given a number between 2-5 (Red, Yellow, Black, White). Each student will then be given the rest of the lesson to formulate your responses to the discussion point using the information provided to help.
