Peers and groups

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Edwardo Santos

In sociology, a peer group is both a social group and a primary group of people who have similar interests, age, background, or social status. The members of this group are likely to influence the person’s beliefs and behaviour. Peer groups contain hierarchies and distinct patterns of behavior. In a high school setting for example, 18 year olds are a peer group with 14 year olds because they share similar and paralleled life experiences in school together.

In contrast, teachers do not share students as a peer group because teachers and students fall into two different roles and experiences.

This module looks at stimulating the awareness of how good is to belong to a peer group and sharing feelings about play activities in a peer group.

We will explore

  • What is a peer group?
  • Why is being part of a peer group good for you?
  • What makes a great peer group?
  • Using storytelling as a team building exercise
  • Class activity – sharing feedback from the story telling

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
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activity

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
