Privacy, Freedom and Edward Snowden

Privacy, Freedom and Edward Snowden

Including youtube links, independent learning activities, discussion activities and plenty of information, this lesson is about exploring the 'snoopers' charter' culture of the NSA and GCHQ, Edward Snowden's role as a whistleblower, and if we should allow our governments to spy on us. Particularly good for citizenship, sociology, RS and Politics this lesson is engaging and interesting to students. Did you know facebook's new privacy policy allows them to use your microphone and camera? AI notes down everything we say via their app...1984? Or safety procedure? Differentiated activities by outcome and task design, there's plenty here to stretch and challenge as well as scaffold. This lesson also includes a debate and information which can be used like a treasure hunt activity. 26 slides of high quality teaching material. Learning questions are: Why is privacy important? What is a whistleblower and what were Wikileaks? Is the internet a force for increased freedom, or increased surveillance? Which is more valuable, freedom or safety?

Developing Thinking Skills Task Cards for the IB PYP

Developing Thinking Skills Task Cards for the IB PYP

Thinking skills combined with reading, speaking, listening and drama! These printable task cards are a terrific way to actively practise the growth mindset directly within the Thinking skills developed within the IB PYP’S Transdisciplinary Skills or Approaches to Learning as they are now known. The task cards can be used in a variety of ways that encourage the children to reflect and think positively of themselves and others in various scenarios that are easily relatable to them. They are asked to reflect on situations that require analysing, synthesising, categorising and evaluating, present doubt, possible antagonism, confidence issues and other difficulties. As you help the children with these thinking skills in a safe, familiar environment, it will greatly benefit them throughout school and particularly as they approach the IB PYP Exhibition. A great review activity! Differentiated for 3rd-5th grade. The orange cards are more challenging text. UK and USA spelling. Suggestions: Whole class - sitting in circle, each child will have a card to read aloud and then share their opinion. These can be discussed as you go around the circle. Teacher led – read aloud a card to a small group and have them interact with each other to solve the problem or scenario. Small groups- Place a pile of cards face down in the middle of the group. Each person will take a turn to read a card, act out or offer their opinion and then those can be discussed within the group. Independent work - Each child can work with a few cards and write or draw how they would solve the social problems presented on the task cards. You will find 32 task cards ready to print and go. I also have similar sets for all of the skills: Research, Self Management, Social and Communication. You can find many more tools for implementing the IB PYP within my store and on my blog. You may like my posters explaining the Approaches to Learning Skills . There are separate sets for big kids and also for younger kids. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com
