Below is a list of themes and concepts from Virginia Wolf. Discuss the themes/concepts with your class and come up with meaningful definitions to describe what they mean to your students (i.e. brainstorm their meanings and come up with a class definition), before attending Virginia Wolf.
- Safe Environment
- Emotional Support
- Personal Growth
- Sibling Support
Some questions to help with the discussion:
- What is the meaning of the following word? (Do your research!)
- What does that word mean to you? Explain.
- A lot of these terms interrelate, can you provide an example of some that interrelate and how?
Write each of the following themes on separate pieces of paper and place them in a bag. In pairs or small groups, students will randomly pull a theme from the bag and will design their own activity (web-based if possible) based on the theme and how it is relevant to their lives in 2019. For example, if wellbeing is chosen, the group will teach the class about wellbeing (2- 5 minutes) and then have the class participate in an activity that helps to enhance their understanding of wellbeing.
