In planning for Black History Month, there are many people whose struggles, achievements and inspirational stories could be shared with our children. Floella Benjamin is certainly inspirational, but has the added advantage of having recorded her experiences in a beautifully written and accessible book, Coming to England.
This lesson uses drama to explore some of Floella’s experiences, while giving the children the opportunity to discuss and express their views on discrimination, inequality and injustice.
Students will learn
Discrimination, and the effects of discrimination on individuals
How to collaborate with others
How to communicate learning in relevant ways
