Content descriptions

General Note: Title from resource description page (viewed April 8, 2015).
Summary: Matthew Tosh introduces a Key Stage 3 Science lesson using the Fisherman's Ring role play technique. Lewis Gomez, a Chemistry teacher at Woodkirk High School near Wakefield, delivers the role play to a group of year eight students, using the lesson plan, video and text-based resources provided. The students watch the TV news report in which a proposed ban on the consumption by under 16s of certain foods - like burgers, chips, fizzy drinks and most types of pizza - is announced. Lewis organises the students into two concentric circles and begins the role play where students put forward arguments for and against the proposed ban based on contributions made in the video. This role play offers a chance for students to develop and refine arguments and encourages them to speak confidently and concisely about diet and health.
