Benjamin Zephaniah Reading Guide

Benjamin Zephaniah Reading Guide

This Resource Pack is based on Gangsta Rap and Refugee Boy, two novels by the author, performance poet and all-round teachers’ favourite. We know that you’re probably familiar with him already; you might even teach books by him as part of your KS3 curriculum – but this pack is designed to give you new ideas to support your planning, or to serve as a general introduction to the themes in his work. What’s more, it coincides with the publication of two beautiful new editions of both titles, showcasing how in today’s society Zephaniah’s voice is even more relevant, powerful and important than ever.

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

A lesson I used as an introductory lesson about migration and the different types of migrant and as a way of highlighting biases present in the media and our individual world view. Best used with new groups of students of any year 7-11 as most of the tasks are reflective and discussion based and involve random pairings and a main carousel activity. Very engaging and easy to manage lesson. Could definitely be used in a Tutor time/Citzenship lesson also and possibly for English to alert students to journalistic bias and to help them read texts more critically.
