I was looking for resources to use as cover lessons. Unfortunately the sheets I saw would cause abuse and lots of problems if used as a cover lesson as it encourages students to stereotype in a way which would cause offence and conflict between students without a trained teacher in the room. I was very disappointed with the resource- it was dated and did not explore stereotyping in the way I was looking for.

Name and school withheld.

Excellent resource for I.L.S., Citizenship and PHSE: a never-ending resource of ready made lessons! Very well thought-out and imaginative lessons and worksheets covering a whole gamut of cultural, stereotyping and relationship matters. Lesson material can date but not this! Despite the 2001 update, everything is certainly relevant to today's issues. Well worth the price!
