Short (1-4 activities)
This toolkit is designed for teachers and students to explore the complex issues surrounding forced migration in a creative and accessible way. It is aimed at students aged 11-16 years.
High quality, engaging film clips from Doc Academy and Comic Relief are used throughout the exercises, making this toolkit an effective and unique resource for both teachers and students. The toolkit provides easy to use activities and ideas to help students reflect on and discuss the issues whilst also inspiring them to learn about and engage with social action and advocacy. With the help of documentary film, varying perspectives on the topic of forced migration are being introduced, while at the same time developing the capacity for independent and critical thinking, empathy, understanding and social responsibility.
How to Use This Toolkit
This toolkit can be used as a stand-alone resource by teachers and students in the classroom. It can be used to engage form and tutor groups, after-school groups and as part of assemblies and year-group projects or any other activity which aims to develop skills such as critical thinking, media literacy, active citizenship and social issues awareness.
There are three themes and are two activities in each theme. Each activity takes 45-60 minutes and can be stand alone. There are approximately 6 hours of activities in total.
The toolkit's exercises and activities are accompanied by film clips tailored to use in the classroom.
The toolkit features the following material:
The toolkit can also be used alongside Doc Academy's free curriculum-linked Exodus English 11-16 lesson plans, and as an extension of Comic Relief's school learning resources.
We love to hear how educators have used our resources.Contact us
We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
