Citizenship/Young Unaccompanied Asylum Seeker Unit of Work

(1)
Suggested key stages: 3 & 4. Subjects: Citizenship, PSHE, SMSC (including Values), English, Media Studies. This resource has been created to support learners at key stages 3 & 4, and their educators, to engage with the situation facing unaccompanied young people who arrive as asylum seekers in the UK. The resource is built around a short animation called ‘Dear Habib’  that shares the story of one young person and their experience of coming to the UK. It is a suite of 7 activities with an accompanying introduction and guidance notes for teachers, and a supporting Safe Space resource that is useful for this type of learning. Across the activities, this resource responds to learning and teaching in Citizenship, Media Studies, English, SMSC (including values) and PSHE, with suggested learning pathways for each of these included in the introductory overview. Through engaging with this resource, learners will develop their understanding of unaccompanied young people, build their concern and compassion for this issue, respond in a variety of creative forms, reflect on their own character, resilience and citizenship. A full breakdown of learning outcomes is included in the introductory overview. The individual activities within this suite can be used in isolation, but we strongly advise that educators read the introductory overview to appreciate the full learning potential of the resource. Common guidance As the content covered by these resources could be considered controversial or sensitive, we recommend that all educators take a few minutes to read through the following ‘Creating Safe Spaces’ document before using any of the activities with learners. This resource was produced in partnership with Rosie Wilson and Rob Bowden of [Lifeworlds Learning] (http://www.lifeworldslearning.co.uk/) and Shouting Ant.

Creating Safe Spaces

(0)
Dealing with challenging and/or controversial issues can lead to strong emotional (and sometimes very personal) responses from learners. It is important that educators/facilitators are able to support learning communities to engage with these issues in a caring, but still critical manner. This activity looks at how active consideration and co-creation of a ‘safe space’ can be an effective way to achieve this.

Ola- There Were Signs: Citizenship & Irregular Status Activities

(0)
This resource has been created to raise awareness about young people living in the UK who may be undocumented (also known as having ‘irregular status’). It is aimed at learners in key stage 4, aged 14-16 years, and for those that educate them. The resource is built around a short animation called ‘There were signs’ that shares insights into the lives of undocumented young people in the UK. The content of this resource may include concepts, terminology and areas of learning that are relatively new to both learners and educators. We therefore signpost to various other forms of support that you may wish to use alongside this resource in order to maximise the learning potential for your learners. All of the ideas and activities within this resource are offered as ideas, and we fully expect that educators will select and further adapt the materials to suit their learners and personal teaching styles. Each activity shows the approximate time suggested to complete it, ranging from 10 to 30 minutes. The overall resource has been designed for delivery in approximately two hours meaning it could be used for a double lesson, two single lessons, or across several form/tutor sessions. It would also lend itself to forming part of an off-timetable day such as a Citizenship day. Common guidance As the content covered by these resources could be considered controversial or sensitive, we recommend that all educators take a few minutes to read through the following ‘Creating Safe Spaces’ document before using any of the activities with learners.
