2 L1 – Teacher GuidanceThe aim of this lesson is for students to consider what personal safety means and ideas about what risky behaviour is. Students will analyse different types of behaviour for why it is risky and what kinds of things they could do to minimise risk. They will also think about the importance of minimising risk and how they can do this in their own lives, as well as how they can advise others. The lesson is mainly discussion based, although there is plenty of opportunity to write things down. There is one specific book task which should be done and one piece of homework which is explained in the powerpoint. Resources needed: projector, access to the internet, speakers Starter (10mins) – show the 3 slides with the 3 different adverts. Students discuss in pairs/small groups or write individually in their books what they think each advert is about or is trying to say. Then get feedback and discuss as a class what each of the 3 adverts have in common – elicit ideas about personal safety and risky behaviour. Part 2 (5mins) – Students come up with a meaning for the word ‘risky’ in pairs. Teacher chooses some to feedback and then gives a definition on the board Part 3 (15mins) – Risky Scale. Students draw a line in their books and label one end with “not at all risky” and the other end with “very risky”. They then have to place the different activities shown on the next slide on their line, depending on what they think the risk of the activity is. As students finish they should write explanations for why they think they are or are not risky. Challenge – are there any that could go at both ends of the spectrum? Can you explain why this is? Part 4 (10mins) – Quick Think. This is done in silence with students thinking of reasons why people do risky things. You can tell them that at the end of 1 minute thinking they will have another minute to write down as many of their ideas as possible. Then get feedback. Show the clip of the Awareness Test. Don’t tell them what it is for. Ask at the end how it links to reasons why people do risky things. Part 5 (10mins) – Giving advice. Show the next clip and ask students to discuss/write what advice they would give to a friend who was thinking of doing this thing. Why is it dangerous? What could the consequences be? Explain the homework as per the slides Plenary (10mins) – students think about themselves as parents and write down how they would try to stop their own children from doing risky things.

21 L2 – Teacher GuidanceThe aim of this lesson is for students to reflect on their own moral boundaries and how they make decisions. They will think about reasons why people break their moral codes or do the wrong thing and analyse the effects of peer pressure. Students will also practice ways to deal with peer pressure so that they can make positive decisions for themselves and their lives. Resources needed: projector, print slides x2 Starter (5mins) – show the picture of Jiminy Cricket and ask students who he is. Show the next slide to explain and then outline the topic of the lesson. Talk about the idea of conscience and morals. Part 2 (15mins) – Moral scale. Students draw a line in their books to make a moral scale and put the different moral dilemmas on their scale to show how likely they would be to do that thing. Most students should also explain their choices. Model the task using the powerpoint. Group discussion. Get some feedback on the moral scales. Discuss how we might feel if we did something that went against our own moral codes. Why do people go against their morals? Part 3 (30mins) – students get into groups. Give each group one of the scenarios from slides Explain that each scenario is a different situation of peer pressure. Students come up with a role play that deals with this peer pressure so that they don’t have to go against their morals. Get them to try to come up with realistic solutions and ways of dealing with it. Students act out their role-plays. Try to go through as many groups as possible but at least do the four different scenarios. Plenary (10mins) – Students write an answer to the question; “why do people have different morals and what can we do when someone tries to get us to go against our morals?”
