Cultural Literacy


Poems, images and stories that you would normally use in your teaching.

What to do:

When using a poem, an image or a story in your next lesson, flip the script a little!

Change the race of the main character, change their name, gender, country of origin, religion, economic status. 

See what effect/affect this has on the interpretation of it?
Think of the cross curricular links in English and History, RE, Science, PSHE...

Idea from listening to @KTLangspec at #TMLondon.
