This lesson is based around two contrasting images. Both images are of two boys in a canoe.
- To raise awareness of issues around privilege and opportunity
- To encourage empathy through creative thinking
Level: A2 - C2
Time: 60 - 90 mins
The students discuss the first image and try to imagine where the boys are going and what they are doing. They also try to imagine the future lives of the boys and the opportunities they will have as they grow up. After discussing the first image, students see the second image and do a similar task. They then contrast the two images and think about any differences in their perceptions of the boys and their lives.
The lesson also includes a creative writing task based around the images.
