Connect the Learning

Teacher Input - “This is lesson 3 of 4 about diversity. Let’s have a quick check to see what you can remember from the previous lessons. Its going to be a male vs female contest based on a key term word chain. Using the key words and ideas you have covered in lessons 1 and 2, lets see who can get the longest chain of words.”

The Big Picture

Teacher input - The curriculum aims for the PSHE: Personal Wellbeing programme of study include young people becoming “responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.” The requirement is for the issues of diversity and prejudice to be tackled at KS3. The relevant Every Child Matters outcome is “make a positive contribution”.

Organise the class into two – male vs female. Give them 1 minute to brainstorm as many words as they can using their work from previous lessons and their imagination.

Use visual prompts (displays, notes etc) from previous lessons if necessary.

Start the contest with a word beginning with “A” (Anglo-Saxon for example) and choose which team goes first. The letters bounce from one side to the other until one team can’t think of a word. They are the losers.

Alternatively if more focused written work is required, each team must write a list of keywords in alphabetical order within a fixed time.
