Hi recently retired from full time teaching. I spent the last 9 years in sixth form teaching (psychology and sociology) with a little PHSCE and KS3 science on the side. before that I worked as a behaviour support consultant for 8 years in all key stages and nursery. I have led inset on all aspects of behaviour management. I have also worked in PRU and EBD settings and have and still do individual mentoring. As someone with mild Asperger's I am particularly interested in all aspects of ASD.

Role Play Game to Introduce Marxism in Sociology

I have run this game each year for about 7 years. I developed it because I found that most sixth form students are victims of “false class consciousness” and need a vivid understanding ofa different perspective not given to them by the media. They believe meritocracy without evidence but won't approach Marxism with an open ming (I find) For this game you will need large amounts of stickle bricks or other construction blocks (ebay or car boot sales are a good source) copies of the role play cards and a large box of Heros or wrapped sweets of some kind). You will need to print out labels for The factory and shop. The aim of the game is to illustrate the role of the worker in the economy and what happens when they do not share in the wealth created by their labours. The PPT also contains some other optional slides to introduce Marxism which can stimulate discussion before or after the exercise.
