Book Description

This book is designed to support teachers in promoting social and emotional wellbeing within their diverse classroom. With 50 detailed lessons plans and supplemented resources to promote discussion, each lesson plan contains learning outcomes, activity descriptions and further questions around areas of diversity specific to race, culture and LGBTQ+.

This accessible text offers a collection of activities with supplemented resources on a wide range of pertinent topics that challenge children to reflect, ask questions, analyse and find solutions through open discussion and collaboration. It provides them with the opportunity to explore their feelings and understand empathy and develop coping strategies in order to promote mental wellbeing. The content covered in this resource includes topics such as the psychological impact of discrimination, the Black Lives Matter movement, prejudice, coping with loss, feeling left out, moving school and managing as a young carer.

A practical guide ideal for those new to teaching as well as more experienced practitioners, this resource will help address social and emotional wellbeing through themes that often affect marginalised groups and is crucial reading for anyone looking to embed an inclusive mental wellbeing culture within their school.

Reviews

"This text will be a great resource for teachers in highlighting the importance of mental health and emotional wellbeing. It also offers guidance on case scenarios that can help prevent events happening and ways in dealing with them at a practical level. 

A greater in-depth questioning and self-reflection identifies the impact this has on children’s learning and development with a positive outcome."

Mr Umesh Raja, Headteacher (The Swaminarayan Preparatory School).

"Manisha has worked for Show Racism the Red Card now since 2014 and is one of our most skilled and knowledgeable educators of young people. She has delivered equalities training in a wide range of settings, including schools within Inner London and those in less diverse areas of the UK. Manisha has also successfully delivered workshops for SRtRC overseas and is a greatly respected member of our Team. More recently Manisha has led the development of workshops and resources which help young people improve their emotional wellbeing. Some of the exercises from those workshops are included in this publication and I am positive they will be of great use to all teachers working with young people of all ages."
