The Inclusion project – active citizenship for disadvantaged learners

inclusion_pic3.jpgDuring the Inclusion project (2005-2007), we worked with young people in Special Needs settings, Pupil Referral Units and secure units for young offenders, in order to develop their Key Skills and understanding of citizenship themes.

An innovative scheme of work evolved from this project, and is available as part of our Inclusion resources DVD. The scheme begins with 4 classroom activities, based on video and printed stimulus materials and covering the themes of empathy, children’s rights, participation and effective problem solving.

The scheme of work culminates in an animation project. Young people apply the knowledge and skills they have developed during the previous sessions to create the ending of a story using only plasticine and a webcam!

The Inclusion project was part of an ‘Equal Shares for All’ partnership supported by the European Social Fund. Additional funds were provided by the Welsh Assembly Government, All Different – All Equal (European Youth Campaign) and Equitable Charitable Trust.

Who Killed Simone Valentine?

Our original scheme of work, designed for disadvantaged learners. It uses the Simone Valentine film, which contains scenes of self-harm, intravenous drug taking and a mild sex scene.

You can also download the lesson plans free of charge.

Our Inclusion DVD includes the film Who Killed Simone Valentine?, plus two sets of teaching resources that is available to purchase.

Sioned’s Problems

The scenes in Simone Valentine may not be appropriate for all pupils. For mainstream settings, therefore, we recommend Sioned’s Problems.

This standalone paper resource is available on the DVD, or you can download the lesson plans free of charge and a step by step guide on how to animate from our resources page.
