Humanism

Humanism

A lesson that explores what Humanism is, including descriptions, embedded videos, exploration of controversy surrounding Richard Dawkins and independent learning activities and discussions. Also, for the creatives out there, an extension which involves writing a rap. Learning questions include: What is Humanism? What do Humanists believe? What are the challenges of believing in Humanism? Extension: Is Humanism a religion? This is intended to help students explore and think with nuance about Humanism, the role of religion in the modern world (if indeed it has any), and is differentiated in its tasks: each question gets increasingly difficult and there are differentiated targets for video clips and activities.

People Same but Different Colours of the Wind quote banner

People Same but Different Colours of the Wind quote banner

Banner with a quote from the Disney song Colours of the Wind. "You think the only people who are people Are the people who look and think like you But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger You'll learn things you never knew, you never knew" I used this to explore differences and prejudice at many levels of society. This is an Excel file which is set to print on many pages to make a long banner. The picture is printed on one A4 sheet and is for illustration only.

SMSC First lesson back

SMSC First lesson back

At the school where I work we do 'Beliefs and Values': PHSE, Citizenship, Religious Studies and SMSC all rolled into one. These 2 lessons, one for KS4 and one for KS3, explore what SMSC is and why it is important. There is a lot here, so plenty for you to pick and choose from, all exploring the following learning outcomes: All of you will be able to explain what SMSC is. Most of you will be able to explain where we learn about SMSC Some of you will be able to evaluate why we teach SMSC in our school community. As always, feedback and recommendations warmly received. :)
