Types of media: Worksheet, Slides
Sue Robbins (University of Sussex)
This is a PPT with accompanying worksheet that gives students practice in forming a position on a topic (in this case eugenics) based on prompts and some preliminary reading.
Students can work through the slides and complete the worksheet autonomously or it can be used as an in-class activity. It has worked well as a pre-arrivals task, and gone on to form the basis of a discussion about the research process on arrival at university.
A gentle warning: The following slides contain information about the topic of eugenics, and ask you to consider examples of groups of people who have been treated as ‘unfit’, therefore the content should be delivered with caution and sensitivity.
