STRATEGIES AND QUESTIONS

Optional: Play ‘Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing’ by Tori Kelly as students enter the room, or use it as a lesson transition.


INTRODUCTION – WHERE THE LESSON IS GOING AND WHAT IS EXPECTED

Big questions: What are we learning about? Why?

Introduce the learning intentions and contextualise the lesson for your class.


ACTIVITY 1 – SAY MORE OFTEN

Show ‘Kid President’s 20 Things We Should Say More Often’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5yCOSHeYn4 (3:31).

Students engage in a ‘Think, Pair, Share’ and develop extra ideas that could be added to the clip just shown.

Success criteria: Watch carefully, share ideas, take turns, listen to others


ACTIVITY 2 – T-CHART

Begin this activity with a discussion about what caregiving is.

TIP: Ensure that students understand that caregiving involves saying and doing.

Emphasise that, unlike the previous activity, this one is about actions rather than just words. Students construct a ‘T-Chart’ in which they write examples of how they receive care from others in one column, and how they show care for others in the other column.

Success criteria: Work independently, draw on personal experiences


ACTIVITY 3 – POSTER

Explain that students will now have an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of what we can say or do to show care. Direct students to read through the ‘Self-Assessment’ sheet for this task.

Students work individually or in pairs to create a mixed media poster that illustrates a range of examples of caregiving. Encourage them to refer to their ‘T-Charts’ from Activity 2 as a reminder of the different ways that care is given and received.

Success criteria: Create a poster; include pictures, explanatory captions and a clear heading


REFLECTION – RETHINKING AND REVISING

Big Ideas: What have I learnt about caregiving?

Students engage in a reflective class discussion: What do you think is the best example of showing care for someone? ‘What makes you say that?’

Success criteria: Listen to others, take turns talking
