Students are introduced to a school SIMS image which they discuss about how useful this source is for finding out about behaviour and what other sources we could investigate to get a better picture. Following this they discuss a source from the time period and working with a partner they create a criteria for judging how useful the source is. After discussions the class create a tip/ help sheet for working with sources (prompts are given as well as a worksheet). Using a continuum line students rank various types of sources based on their usefulness in learning about policing, which they annotate (examples given in presentation) before completing an exam question.

I to the Other

I to the Other

Package includes:1. Slide presentation (74 slides)2. Visuals, prompts and interactive modelling slides.3. Unit plan and 4 lesson plans4. 3 marked summative assignments and 1 culminating assignment for the unit5. Worksheets and assignment instructions and rubrics.For more information on this unit - http://www.framepoints.com/unitIntroUnderstanding self and identity in the larger context of contemporary culture, technology and society has grown increasingly more complex for this generation as children and teens engage in or are subjected to media content, and the digital platforms that deliver it to the end user, that challenge community standards and undermine educational prerogatives. This unit engages students in an exploration of the self and the construction of the “I,” with a focus on how teens construct identity and relate on and through social media. This work is followed by an inquiry into a current Social Studies issue, and an exploration of the sociological concept of the “Other.” These lessons are then tied together in the final culminating assignment of the unit – a literary essay that draws on learning from the earlier lessons in the critical interpretation of a dystopian narrative. The importance of educating students about otherness has never been more apparent, particularly in school spaces, as diverse student populations create unique challenges for schools and the communities that they serve. This unit aims to draw out those tensions and create a constructive, intellectually engaging discourse among students, revealing the social dynamics of otherness while at the same time, pointing to the bonds that create stronger communities and foster social capital.
