Module 1: WHO SAYS

Page 16

<<previous | next>>

Choose one of the following which both illustrate the same point.

• A group on a school outing are occupying all the seats in a train carriage when an elderly person gets on. There are two seats which are supposed to be given up if someone like this needs it.

• In a place where there are clear NO SMOKING notices, one person lights up. Show how other people react.


Often such rules are made to remind the public to think for others. Why are such notices necessary? Should there be such rules? Why? Are there such rules in the school or in the town? What is the best way of persuading people to obey rules?

• Some pupils have asked a teacher to help them with something in the lunch hour.
a) The teacher arrives at the arranged time but the pupils arrive late.
b) The pupils arrive on time and the teacher arrives late.


What is the difference in the way the situation was resolved? This is a personal matter. No written law is being broken but if we give our word do we reckon to stick by it? Under what circumstances do we sometimes break our word? What do we owe to the person to whom we gave our word? What do we feel when others break their word to us?

alternative topic four - project work

to the teacher

Worksheet 4 - Who Says? (page 17) - gives a choice of activities the pupils can do at home. They are being asked to look out for the application of rules or laws in board games or from road signs etc. and are given some questions to answer. This could lead to a presentation to the class or a montage for the classroom wall. You may wish to limit the choice to two or three of those suggested. It would be most effective if not everyone did the same project!
