What is our local community and how am I part of it? Lesson 1 of 6

GCSE • Identities & Communities • Core Curriculum

What is our local community and how am I part of it?

This lesson is part 1 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Why does our changing community identity matter?

This lesson allows students to consider what identity is and the role an individual has within their community. It considers what a community is and how we can be part of multiple communities through multiple identities. Students investigate their own regions through the use of the census to better understand their own communities.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:

1. How can I explain what identity is?
2. What makes up my community?
3. How do I fit into my community?
