‘Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress’ – Lesson Plan

During December we will be sharing the lesson plans published by Highland Council’s Equalities Improvement Group and LGBTI+ sub-group to support the development of Equality and Diversity across the curriculum. 18 picture books have been selected; for each picture book there have been lessons created for Early – Fourth Levels (Curriculum for Excellence) driven by the Literacy and English and Health and Wellbeing Experiences and Outcomes.

Today’s Lesson: ‘Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress’ – Christine Baldacchino

Morris has a great imagination. He paints amazing pictures and he loves his classroom’s dress-up center, especially the tangerine dress. It reminds him of tigers, the sun and his mother’s hair.

The other children don’t understand – dresses, they say, are for girls. And Morris certainly isn’t welcome in the spaceship his classmates are building – astronauts, they say, don’t wear dresses.

To support the health and wellbeing of our children and young people we need to challenge gender stereotypes. ‘Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress’ is another text which does just that.
