What do you need to know? Reflecting on your education

Used originally for Theory of Knowledge in the IB Diploma - the learning objective is essentially for students to have the opportunity to think critically about their education system and the extent to which it is effectively preparing them for their life to come. Includes an activity linked to the TED Talk: Do schools Kill Creatively which is readily available via TED and youtube- this presentation would be a useful tutor time activity/ PSHE or Life Skills activity too.

Youth Crime

Youth Crime

3 - 4 hours of lessons all with a focus on youth crime. This pack covers gangs, knife crime and the debate around the criminal age of responsibility. There is a focus on how the (UK) law deals with young offenders and why it is that teens get involved with gangs and criminal activity in the first place. The lessons are fully differentiated, engaging and contain Powerpoints, worksheets, clips and activities. They have been made by an experienced PSHCE Head of Department and used in a variety of UK Secondary Schools. I really hope you enjoy this pack - please do leave a review :) Many more free and inexpensive PSHE and Citizenship resources available here: EC_Resources Store
