Help your students to retain knowledge about Law through role play

A study by Alison K Banikowski on ‘Strategies to Enhance Memory Based on Brain Research’ found that ‘Information that is meaningful to students and contains an emotional “hook” is more likely to be attended to and remembered’. Among these strategies of emotional learning is the role play. This technique gives students the opportunity to engage in real life experiences and provide for hands-on learning tool. You can read the full study here: http://sc-boces.org/english/IMC/Focus/Memory_strategies2.pdf

With that in mind, we have developed a photocopiable resource to support your teaching of A Level OCR Law. It includes 10 carefully crafted role plays covering each step of the legal process and one ‘ultimate role play’ following a single case from stop & search to sentencing. With full instructions for each participant, and supporting material (e.g. mock bail forms, charge sheets, etc.). Perfect for helping students retain knowledge and deepen their understanding about Law.

Independent reviewers are saying:

“This resource is fantastic; it includes a wide variety of material and is a good
way of bringing often dry subjects to life. I particularly like the well-thought out
scenarios and clear directions for all the people that are going to be involved.”
E Skinner, Subject Leader for Law

“The role plays would require very little extra by way of resources. All the work is done by
the author.
Role play exercises can help make the learning activity more enjoyable for the
student as well as for the teacher. The author obviously uses such exercises quite a lot.”

A Padfield, Law Lecturer

Suitable plays for GCSE Drama

Solving the problem of finding suitable plays that meet
GCSE Drama exam board criteria

One of the most frustrating and time consuming problems associated with GCSE drama classes is the seeking out of suitable plays for the students to perform.

There are, of course, many plays around, but not so many that have the right amount of engagement per candidate and the right number of pupils involved within the cast.

What’s more, given the restriction that some exam boards now impose on the taking of scenes from published plays and the need for the play to have a unified sense, finding suitable plays is getting more difficult – especially if one wishes to avoid using the same plays as last year.

This is the problem that “Here comes Godot now!” by Lindsay Jones solves. It contains 12 plays each containing multi-roling and the variety of theatrical techniques that exam boards now seem to love.

The plays particularly engage with themes not often found in other sources, such as dark comedy, fantasy, horror, humour and urban myths. Thus the themes in this volume avoid the social topics such as drug taking which other volumes (and indeed assemblies and PSHE lessons) will already have covered extensively.

As for performances, the plays are written for a variety of combinations of participants from two boys or two girls up to four boys and four girls. Because the volume is photocopiable (or printable from a CD rom) only one copy of the book need be bought, and it can be used among the class without further cost.
