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).
Kindly created and shared by the young people and adults within the Millburn ASG Equality and Diversity Working Group and the Highland Council’s LGBTI+ sub-group of the Care and Learning Equalities Improvement Group.
