Target group: school year 11
Duration – 1 hour 20 minutes
The lesson begins with the customary short film, which puts before the participants the issues of becoming aware of one's own ego in the context of individual peculiarities and social belongingness. There then follows an interactive vote, whose results are then discussed to analyse the personal perceptions entertained by the young people about their social identity and their individual values. The subsequent work is carried out in a training format, including exercises on self-awareness as an individual and as a part of society by means of the playing of particular roles, and of the self as an integral personality, harmonically combining the individual and the general. The training session is concluded with a mini-lecture, intended to synthesise the impressions made in the course of the training and to supplement the picture of the social identity pertaining to such an important social role as that ofi a Russian citizen, and the values that stand behind it. The final questionnaire and processing of the results will further consolidate the experience gained, motivating socially active behaviour and the development of the students' own individuality.
