As part of the Personal Well-being programme of study, it is important that students understand that all forms of prejudice and discrimination must be challenged at every level in our lives. In this module, we learn about the different kinds of prejudice and ways that it can be challenged.
A series of student activities that consider the questions, what is prejudice, who might we be prejudiced against and what forms do prejudices take. A review of this lesson takes the form of a teacher led discussion.
A group exercise that looks at a series of case studies and allows students to present their thoughts the consequences of prejudice and discrimination for these people.
Using a range of different scenarios, students role-play the issues they may face and how their actions may affect others.
In the last session of this module, students must think of ways to eradicate the issues that have been identified in the previous lessons.
