Literacy: Functional Skills English, General literacy / English

Free tags: Equality and Diversity

Context: Art Film Media Music TV

Level: E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Flash cards, Interactive presentation, Listening and/or speaking activity

I have had feedback from people using the Big Brother PDF discussion worksheet (see link below – under see also) but without any pictures! The fun part of the session (and for it to really work) is to show the students the people they have chosen: this generates plenty of discussion about prejudice and stereotyping. So, here are the 20 pictures to match to each description given in the earlier resource. (You should feel free to edit and adapt according to the demographics / prejudices / preconceptions of own students).

I’ve also included an introductory PPT to turn it from a resource into a whole lesson (when used with the previously mentioned PDF file). This includes a final slide including previous winners who have shown that, despite its critics, BB does promote equality and diversity. Enjoy!

Physical format: 
1 page Word document, 5 slide PPT
