Pupils at Collingwood College really enjoyed the lessons and found them relevant to their lives. The AtFirstSite resources encourage students to discuss their own views and their experiences of the issues. The resources were very current and as a result really appealed to the students. I am looking forward to using them again next year.
The lesson that really stood out to me in terms of engagement from pupils was presentation 3. Pupils were shocked by what the celebrities actually looked like and there was lots of discussion about whether the media need to do more to promote a healthy body image.
