KS3/4 RE Lesson Plan – Use A Film To Discuss The Abuse Of Vulnerable People And The Importance Of Charity

TrueTube’s film For the Sake of the Child uses first hand testimony to describe the experiences of child migrants and opens up internal contexts from movies such as Rabbit Proof Fence (aborigines and forced sterilisation), Philomena (Magdalen laundries), Django Unchained and 12 Years a Slave (slavery), as well as tapping into so many more recent issues that students have a mixed awareness of – child soldiers, government deception (Panama, WMDs), abuse of religious power (child suicide bombers and sexual abuse), for example.

Students are instantly engaged and very keen to discuss and contextualise the topic. A key question is: ‘Could it happen now?’. This lesson plan encourages students to discuss how vulnerable people are still being abused today, and gets them thinking carefully about the importance of charities and being responsible in giving.
