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: ‘Malala: A brave girl from Pakistan’ and ‘Iqbal: A brave boy from Pakistan’ – Jeanette Winter
Meet two brave young heroes who stood up for the right to freedom and education in this inspirational nonfiction picture book from acclaimed author-illustrator Jeanette Winter. Two children: Iqbal Masih and Malala Yousafzai. Each was unafraid to speak out. He, against child slavery in the carpet trade. She, for the right of girls to attend school.
‘Malala: A brave girl from Pakistan’ and ‘Iqbal: A brave boy from Pakistan’ is a picture book which can be used to explore human rights and children’s rights through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
