Encounter Edu – Culture

KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16Website

Encounter Edu has developed a series of online teaching resources for secondary students based on the first-hand experiences of young people who participated in two expeditions in 2010, Journey to the UK and Journey to Pakistan. The young teams worked with artists, politicians, social entrepreneurs and other young people to build up a portrait of these countries beyond media stereotypes, through blogs, films and photos.

Resources include:

  • A full scheme of work on the media for Year 9-11 English, Media Studies or Citizenship (ages 13-16), examining how the media influences stereotyping and portrayal of ‘extremist’ countries. The lessons cover an introduction to the media, layout, fact and opinion as well as different writing techniques.
  • A series of assembly and form ideas based around a video that the team made exploring an aspect of Pakistan. The issues covered range from media, history and faith to arts, child labour and social change.

You need to register on the website to download the resources, but they are all free.
