Secondary Identity Pack

This pack includes six sessions based around Schools Linking’s four key questions: Who am I? Who are we? Where do we live? and How do we all live together? The purpose of these lessons is to develop discussion around the concepts of identity, diversity, uniqueness and belonging. This set of lessons is just one way of exploring these discussions.

The order of the sessions can be changed and developed to suit your group/class and the time you have available. The sessions could be delivered in tutor time, Citizenship/PSHE lessons or as an impact day: they are very adaptable. This work is only recommended where a teacher is working with a group they know well. It is particularly important to be aware of any students in the group who are looked after.

The pack can be delivered entirely as a series of discussions to help students develop their discussion and social skills, or it could include the added literacy sections around the poem or the stories. This topic has clear, cross-curricular links to English, Art, RE, Geography and History.

There are many resources that can be used to start the discussions: it could be the Skin Again poem by Bell Hooks mentioned in the session plans, but you can use any resource that you think your students would relate to and find a useful and thought-provoking stimulus on identity.
