Before the lesson
- To explore stereotypes in fictional characters and think about how these might influence us
Pupils should be taught:
- What a stereotype is, and how stereotypes can be unfair, negative or destructive
Pupils needing extra support: May need help with understanding what a A generalised or over-simplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing that is often untrue…. is and could benefit from books to help them with the activity.
Pupils working at greater depth: Can be challenged to consider if there are differences between characters from traditional stories and older books and more modern stories – have stereotypes lessened over time?
