challenging stereotypes
3 A4 sheets with 15 descriptions for cutting up. Set of 10 for giving to pairs or groups to put in order of who you'd most/least like to invite to speak to class. Set of 5 for giving out later reveals truth: there are actually 5 not 10 people, all real, but they're described in ways likely to make them sound both more and less appealing. Whole thing is good for any PSHE or Citizenship type lesson, ages 10 to adult, and useful standalone for supply teachers. Process of ranking demands social skill, and discussion afterwards can be very thoughtful. Adapted from free British Red Cross educational materials -- see their excellent website.
