Overview

This lesson explores how stereotyping can lead to groups of people becoming scapegoats for the ills in our society. The PowerPoint begins with a story featuring Go-Givers character Ahmeti, the goat, which is suitable for Lower KS2 upwards. The later slides show examples of how media bias can contribute to Islamophobia – prejudice against Muslims. These would be suited to Upper KS2.
