Consciousness and emotions

Module Overview

Originated by Dr. Viktorija Radotic

Consciousness is the state or quality of awareness or, of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. It has been defined in various ways: the ability to experience or to feel wakefulness, having a sense of selfhood or soul, and the executive control system of the mind. Emotion is any conscious experience characterised by intense mental activity and a high degree of pleasure or displeasure. In this module we look at what part the brain plays in consciousness and ‘the wiring’ that drives our emotions.

We will explore

  • What is consiousness?
  • What part does the brain play in consiousness?
  • Looking at socially defined emotions
  • Looking at different emotions
  • How are our brains wired?

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Reflection worksheet
  • Wordsearch
  • Teacher assessment

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
