Educational Programme

Being ManKind Lesson / Workshop Plans

We have developed two sets of lesson plans, KS2 (9-11 years) and KS3+ (11+ years), which can be delivered in schools (PSHE or Morning Registration), Pupil Referral Units, youth organisations and Young Offender Institutions. The KS3+ plans also include suggestions to adapt activities and discussions for older age groups e.g. prisons, support groups.

What resources do you receive?

We understand that teachers and session leaders are incredibly stretched in terms of time and resources so we want to make your job as easy as possible. We provide all the resources needed to deliver the sessions including:

  1. A copy of the Being ManKind book
  2. PowerPoint presentation
  3. Instructions for the teacher/ session leader
  4. Videos
  5. Story audios
  6. Additional worksheets
  7. Take-home/ story sheets

How do you use the resources?

The lesson plans can be delivered as single stand-alone sessions, or as an 8-part series. They are designed to be used flexibly, therefore stories and activities can be selected based on the needs and abilities of your group, and to suit the length of your session.

Each session can last between 10 and 120 minutes, and is typically delivered as a 60-minute lesson (e.g. PSHE), a longer workshop or split into bitesize (10-20 minute) sections over the course of a week during e.g. morning registration.

We have included a combination of discussions, videos, paired, and group activities to promote engagement, with each lesson comprising the following sections:

  • Introduction (starter activity and development)
  • Main 1 – Being ManKind story (audio and discussion)
  • Main 2 – Extended discussion around the Being ManKind story
  • Main 3 – Further activity
  • Plenary & Self-reflection
