#MySenseOfSelf – body Image and self-esteem lesson plan
A body image and self-esteem Lesson Plan for key stages 3 and 4 produced by the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign and ASOS.
#MySenseOfSelf is a free lesson plan which promotes positive body image and encourages pupils to open up a discussion with their peers. The materials are designed to be adaptable so teachers can integrate them into their planned PSHE education programme.
The resource may be delivered as a 1/1.5 hour lesson or over a number of sessions and is divided into three specific topics:
• Examining the impact of social media
• Celebrating difference
• Boosting Self-confidence
The PSHE Association’s Subject Specialist Karen Summers says;
“#MySenseOfSelf provides the opportunity to promote positive body image in a highly engaging and thought-provoking way, and would make an excellent contribution to a high quality PSHE programme.
This resource gives young people the opportunity to develop the attributes and behaviours that support self-esteem and recognise the value of diversity. It offers a rich variety of classroom activities which enable pupils to confront assumptions, employ strategies to support their own wellbeing and know how to foster an optimistic outlook so that they feel confident in recognising and challenging misconceptions about body image.
It supports the ‘Health and Wellbeing’ and ‘Relationships’ aspects of the PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education and develops key skills and attributes such as critical-thinking, confidence and optimism.”
