Equip your students with valuable communication tools to recognise and respond to different types of bullying.
Anti-Bullying Strategies Explored Through Drama
Help your students self-advocate and effectively communicate with their peers by exploring bullying scenarios through roleplay.
This set of 8 task cards helps students understand and cope with different types of bullying scenarios through role play and communication. The resource includes a set of dramatic prompts that can be used to initiate discussions and encourage students to act out different situations.
The resource includes eight different bullying scenarios that students can explore through role play. The scenarios cover:
- Physical Bullying
- Verbal Bullying
- Social Bullying (exclusion)
- Bullying Bystander
Each scenario card includes a scene-setting introduction, a brief scenario description, and a discussion question that can be used to initiate group discussion. The prompts are designed to encourage students to think critically about the situation and consider the feelings of everyone involved. Build field knowledge with our Resilience Tool Kit Poster before commencing your roleplay lesson.
Tips for Differentiation and Scaffolding
Effective communication and building resilience are ongoing themes throughout the primary curriculum.
These task cards are flexible and can be adapted to suit different ability levels and learning objectives. Try editing them in Google Slides (then export as PDFs) for further customisation and differentiation.
The resource can also be used in conjunction with other teaching materials, such as videos or written texts, to create a more comprehensive learning experience.
