Little Box of Big Questions 2: My Learning. My Behaviour. My Future
€33.33 ex. VAT
These cards aim to stimulate philosophical conversations with children and young people about some big, and very big questions about life.
They aim to help children and young people discover links between their attitudes, learning and behaviour with a view to thinking about their plans in school and in life, and longer term ideas about their future.
Aim and purpose
These cards are intended to provide prompts and a stimulus to a meaningful and stimulating, positive and enjoyable conversation which helps us to understand the views of children and young people about themselves, their relationships, their lives and their beliefs.
We believe that we can understand children/young people better when we listen carefully to their responses to the 'big' questions in life. This can help us understand the root of their thinking and behaviour and can give us insight into how best to support them to reach their potential. We believe that children/young people need time, space and kindness to speak openly about the things most important to them and therefore, careful facilitation and trusted relationships are key to these conversations.
Who is it for?
This resource is suitable for children and young people aged 8 to 18 years, but could be used with any individual (child, young person or adult) who may be interested in, or benefit from, engaging in conversations of this kind.
It can be used individually or as part of a group and can either be facilitated by an adult or between peers. However, it is vital that children/young people taking part in the conversations have a positive and trusted relationship with the facilitator.
Use the cards to:
● understand children/young people in a deep way
● benefit the child/young person’s self-development
● promote learning and behaviour in school
● help assessments under the Children and Families Act 2014
● enable self-focussed, stimulating discussions and revealing answers
● encourage self awareness & personal reflection
