Equality, Disability + Law (MACS Charity Lesson)

A KS4 PSHCE lesson which serves as both an introduction to the concept of disability discrimination in UK law and in depth examination of the 2010 Equality Act. The lesson, created by MACS Charity with EC Resources, allows students to investigate the benefits to society of the 2010 Equality Act by studying cases of discrimination in schools, workplaces and the wider world.

These resources also serve to highlight how MACS charity (Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support) helps children with visual impairments and prepares them for life as independent and disabled UK citizens.

The lesson lasts around 2 hours and includes differentiated activities, case study investigations, literacy focus and debate tasks, clip tasks and group activities as well as guidance to show how the lesson meets sections of the new PSHE draft curriculum from the DfE for 2020 and the statutory Citizenship curriculum for KS4.

The lesson is in the Zip File - the images have been uploaded so you can clearly see what the lesson includes.

MACS is a charity for young people who were born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes, so the assemblies focus on the importance of valuing our vision and how we should treat everyone with respect and without prejudice.
