Hi teacher! It’s great that you and your class are participating in the Together Without Racism training. On this page, you’ll find tasks that you can use to examine racism-related topics together with your students.
If you have not yet filled out the questionnaire which aims at mapping schools’ point of departure in examining racism, please do so before you start the process!
Lessons and tasks
For teachers, we have planned tasks that together form content for two 45-minute lessons.
They can be held between the remote lesson and the final workshop (the best option for the process) or after the final workshop.
Please note! Instead of the entire lessons, you can also combine individual tasks with other lessons.
If questions or concerns arise from students during these tasks and exercises, and you would like for us to go through them in the workshop, please write them down and send them to us by email. If there are questions after the module, you can of course contact us then, too. We are happy to respond to the students’ questions and comments.
Topics: Racialization, cultural and structural racism, representations
This lesson will examine racism concepts and think about how human and cultural diversity is visible in our environment.
Teacher’s instructions, lesson 1
The lesson includes a video that examines the concepts of racialization (5:30 min). The video can also be shown separately. The video is in Finnish, but you can switch on English subtitles. The subtitles, however, are currently a bit hard to read, so here’s the script for both the videos.
Topics: Identity, diversity, anti-racist actions: friendship, listening, making a difference
The second lesson examines factors relating to friendship and social skills. It also deals with how we can tackle racism.
Teacher’s instructions, lesson 2
Lesson-related video which examines microaggressions (2min.) This video can be shown separately. The video is in Finnish, but you can switch on English subtitles. The subtitles are, however, currently a bit hard to read, so here’s the script for both the videos.
