Welcome my Dashing Defenders! Your team (of about 6-8 students) will
  • investigate one Right of the Child (Number 7 - Bullying in Schools) from different perspectives or roles
  • design an art work or cartoon about the children and their situation,
  • create a puppet play, song, commercial or pantomime about your Rights of the Child

You will then use the information you have gathered to share ideas with members from the other class teams.

Process:

1. Compare your ideas of what the Rights of the Child mean with those of the other members of your group.

2. Go to the The United Nations' Rights of the Child page and
investigate Number 7.

3. Read it as a group, discuss what it means and rewrite it in your own words - either in Wordle or on "A Web Whiteboard". You might need to have a dictionary handy or use the online dictionary and Wikipedia.)

4. To investigate the Right of the Child (Number 7 - Bullying in Schools), you need to each take on different perspectives or roles (some of you might have to double up) - become that perspective or role even if you personally disagree with it.

Each perspective or role reflects what different groups around the world and here in Australia think.

The Perspectives or Roles are:

Victim of Bullying

Bullying Student

Bystander

School Teacher or Principal

Parent of child bullied or a bully

Campaigner against bullying

5. Work out which person will take on which perspective or role and then use the Resources listed below for each perspective to answer the question (s): bullying.gif (5181 bytes)

Why is there Bullying in Schools? Should it happen? Why? or Why Not?
Can it be prevented? How?


REMEMBER: Take a particular stance on this question depending on how you think your perspective would act or believe.

6. Debate/Discussion: Why is there Bullying in Schools? Should it happen? Why? or Why Not? Can it be prevented? How?

Each of you are to contribute to this debate from your perspective or role.

Come to consensus about the Questions and be ready to explain them to the rest of the class.

7. CREATIVE ACTIVITIES:

After you have debated your question, you are to create a piece of art work and a play, song or commercial about your Right and the issues surrounding it. Remember, it is important to show the complexities of this issue (there are many sides and people have different views).

Steps:
 

  • design an art work or cartoon about the children and their situation,
  • create a puppet play, song, commercial or pantomime about your Rights of the Child

Each student is to create their own art work or cartoon about the children and their situation from your perspective.

Together, as a team, you are to create a puppet play, song, commercial or pantomime about your Rights of the Child.

You can stay in your perspective or role.  

Your team must cover the following duties (so you need to allocate two people to each duty):

Writer - your job is to create the script for the puppet play; or, the theme for the song; or the words for the commercial or pantomime.

Designer - your job is to create the backdrop for the puppet play; or, commercial or pantomime. If your group decides to create a song, you need to design the CD cover for it.

Performers - your job is to covert the script into a creative piece of work!

Ideas Contributor/Director – you need to be creative and think of ideas and direct the performance.


 

Return to Plan of Attack to continue your mission.

"We discovered that peace at any price is no peace at all.
We discovered that life at any price has no value whatever;
that life is nothing without the privileges, the prides,
the rights, the joys which make it worth living, and also
worth giving. And we also discovered that there is
something more hideous, more atrocious than war or than
death; and that is to live in fear."

Eve Curie, French author, speaking to the American Booksellers Association, New York, 9 April 1940
