Children have different family, clan, ethnic and other social networks to which they belong and which define who they are. As a teacher, you need to be sensitive to these differences and work to make all your pupils feel included as they build more networks. In this section, you will use a variety of teaching methods and resources to help your pupils identify their own networks and to respect their differences. We start with a discussion and drawing family trees to find out about family relationships. You will use role-play and problem solving activities to help pupils identify their school network. Finally, we propose that you invite a local expert to explore the wider community networks that form part of your pupils’ lives.
