Sociodrama;(making plays about social issues) is
based on the learning principles which are relevant
to the concerns and views of others; it draws on
other people's experiences and engages with
social, political and economic issues.

Sociodrama in the classroom expands children's

view of the world by introducing them to real
issues affecting the greater society. Creating
empathy in students through them being aware of
the situations of others, ultimately leads to the
establishment of a more responsible society.

Embarrassing moment
Split the class into groups of 4 or 5.

Each come up with an embarrassing moment and tell it too each other, after this ask the group to choose one of the stories.

They then each take it in turn to tell the rest of the class the story, whilst the rest of the class has to decide on whose the original story
actually was.

End of session, call in group and discuss

which main points made the story stand out?

Why did we believe a certain person over someone else?

Was it easy to tell?

What did we like about the stories?

The development of the non-material element of a human being which

animates and sustains us and, depending on our point of view, either
ends or continues in some form when we die.

It is about the development of a sense of identity, self-worth,

personal insight, meaning and purpose. It is about the development of
a pupils spirit. Some people may call it the development of a pupils
soul; others as the development of personality or character.

It is also about the development

of pupils understanding of
societys shared and agreed
values. It is about understanding
that there are issues where there
is disagreement and it is also
about understanding that
societys values change. Moral
development is about gaining an
understanding of the range of

developing an opinion about the

Conscience Alley
Sometimes known as Thought Tunnel, this technique involves a
protagonist walking down an alley formed by his classmates. One side
is lined by students providing the voice of reason while the other side
plays devils advocate. Given a mock dilemma, the two lines will
attempt to influence the protagonists final decision by throwing
opposing advice as he walks down the alley.

Carried out in groups, pupils draw an outline of a body on a piece of
mahjong paper. They then give it an interesting personality by writing
words or phrases on the paper describing the character, which they

Role of the Teacher

Teacher becomes a facilitator rather than an authority or the source of knowledge.

Hoetker (1969) warns that " the teacher who too often imposes his authority or who
conceives of drama as a kind of inductive method for arriving at preordained
correct answer, will certainly vitiate the developmental values of drama and
possibly its educational value as well.

Barnes (1968) emphasises that education should be more towards active

exploration, in this terms, of the language rather than only to listen to one voice
which is the teacher.

As a result, the class becomes more of a learner-centered rather than a teachercentered one.
