SEN Foreign Culture Lesson Plans (6 individualised plans for a 12 week program).
The program will aim to develop students understanding of different cultures within the world. Over a 12 week program of study, students will look at 6 distinct cultures and identify some of the different tastes, smells, noises and items associated with that particular culture. To achieve this the session will be fragmented into two halves with the second half of sessions then further broken down into smaller groups. Students will begin with a presentation of information related to that culture in the format of attention autism/all (e.g. what do I have in my bucket today), with items pulled out relating to that culture. Following this the class will be broken into groups of 2-3 and will go round with a TA from table to table to try some of the different items related to that culture. A culture will subsequently be taught over a two week period to reinforce learning, with the outline of the lesson repeated. Students will learn about the following cultures/countries:
1. Italian (European)
2. Indian (Asian Sub-continent)
3. Chinese (Asia)
4. Brazil (South American)
5. Australia (Australasian)
6. Kenyan (African)
