Before the lesson
- To recognise that stereotypes exist based on a number of factors
Pupils should be taught:
- What a stereotype is, and how stereotypes can be unfair, negative or destructive
Pupils needing extra support: Have some examples of older people who defy stereotypes e.g. David Attenborough, The Queen, Paul McCartney, Esther Rantzen, Captain Tom Moore.
Pupils working at greater depth: Look at more than one person who defies age stereotypes perhaps someone they know and someone who is famous.
