Suggested teaching strategies

  • Students work in small groups to complete the summary.
  • Students can use a graphic organiser to show the information from the investigation worksheet. Using the jigsaw technique, students should pick different websites to research and then report back to the class what they found out.

Introduction

As a class, discuss what community groups are and ask students to name some examples. Have students then say which ones they would or wouldn’t join.

Display the digital lesson to explore community groups and why people join them.

Development

Provide students with the summary and worksheet to complete.

The investigation worksheet explores virtual communities as another type of community group.

Differentiation

  • Students requiring additional support can be provided with a virtual community/website to research for the investigation worksheet.
  • As an extension to this lesson, students can compare two virtual communities for the investigation worksheet.
  • An additional activity is to have a class debate about which group would be best to belong to—a community group in the local area or a virtual community.

Conclusion

Students create a short video about their favourite community or virtual group, and state why they are part of it or want to be. Students can upload their video or email to the teacher.
