We’ve created two free PSHE lessons for teachers to use with their Key Stage 4 students
Accredited by the PSHE Association, these lessons support pupils to explore the impact film and media content can have on mental health and the importance of making healthy viewing choices.
Learning objectives include:
To learn about the factors that can affect viewing choices and the influence film can have on attitudes, perceptions and emotions
To learn about how media content can affect wellbeing and how on-screen representations of mental health affect people’s perceptions
Our lesson plans also support teachers to meet the Department for Education’s statutory guidance for Relationships and Health education in the following areas:
Topic: Mental wellbeing
How to critically evaluate when something they do or are involved in has a positive or negative effect on their own or others’ mental health.
Relationships and sex education
Topic: Respectful relationships
How stereotypes, in particular stereotypes based on sex, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or disability, can cause damage (e.g. how they might normalise non-consensual behaviour or encourage prejudice).
Topic: Online and media
The impact of viewing harmful content.
